In districts where brine pumping was carried on, it was often impossible to identify the particular operations which caused or contributed to subsidence1. In addition to local provisions in Cheshire2 (where the industry was historically of particular importance), a more general means of providing compensation for damage was provided by the Brine Pumping (Compensation for Subsidence) Act 1891 which, now that brine pumping is no longer an active concern3, has been repealed.
