This book presents a complete demonstration of what needs to be done for contaminated sites, from analyzing a site's potential economic value and the site's contamination issues to site testing and analysis. The text explores the selection of appropriate remediation methods, the determination of ongoing risks and limitations of a remediated site, site reclamation, new uses for remediate sites, and reporting documentation. The author also covers VOCs, radiochemicals (radon), biologicals, and other soil and groundwater contaminants. Case studies feature examples from the US, Canada, the UK, and The Netherlands.
