Contaminated Land Summary

Contaminated Land: Problems and Solutions by T. Cairney

Chemically contaminated land is recognized as both an immediate and a long-term major hazard, yet published guidance on how to tackle the problem is sparse. Unfortunately much of the available information emphasizes only the risk and dangers, rather than indicating safe and economical strategies of reclamation. Contaminated land can be reclaimed safely, provided that sufficient attention is paid to detail, and that the proposed end-use of the land is appropriate and based on thorough site investigation. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the reclamation of chemically contaminated land, reviewing methods and strategies at present in use for safe and economical reclamation. The authors concentrate on the more important facets of reclamation but indicate where data and information are lacking.
