The Council manages a list of sites in the region that are, or could be, contaminated, called the Hazardous Activities and Industries List (HAIL).
In November 2009, the Council set about making this information available to the public. With the assistance of the three District Councils' rating data, all landowners of properties on the HAIL were notified and we have now released the HAIL data for Northland. This list is available at www.nrc.govt.nz/hail
The Council will continue to update and develop this database, including new sites as they are found or sites already listed that require visits to confirm the information held.
