Description

Site Remediation: Planning and Management describes the management of remediation from a planning perspective, skillfully combining Superfund requirements and site remediation strategy in one practical volume. It clarifies and suggests remedies for the current quagmire of confusing Superfund reform and slow, expensive site remediation by thoroughly explaining the Superfund program and then describing how each of its components can fit into an integrated planning and management strategy. Site Remediation covers environmental sampling, site characterization, risk assessment, cleanup criteria, technology and technology screening, and public participation. Detailed and comprehensive, yet easy to understand, this book contains all you need to know about this important subject.

Reviews
