Overcoming barriers to large-scale urban re-development is an essential step in the global drive toward achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals. Arguably one of the most significant barriers is land and groundwater contamination. At Australia’s largest urban re-development site, Fishermans Bend, complex environmental datasets have been collected with which to characterise hydrogeological processes and contamination extent at the regional-, or precinct-scale. These datasets provide important context for individual ‘site-scale’ investigations by identifying seasonal variability in contaminant concentrations, and multiple diffuse contaminant sources such as legacy landfills, industrial activities and fill. Where these increasingly complex and varied environmental datasets can be collected, stored and managed within one central database, cross- or inter-disciplinary collaborations may drive improvements in solving environmental issues which typically arise during the re-development process.
