25 Years of Contaminated Land Management - Achievements and Work Still to Be Done
Originally Held October 4, 2005, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM, EDT (14:00-15:30 GMT)
Panel 2 Overview:
Both sides of the Atlantic have experienced remarkable policy and technical advances over the past 25 years in the field of contaminated site management. "Command and Control" approaches to regulating cleanup have given way to flexible site specific decision making. Dig-and-haul solutions are superseded by in situ technologies that have reduced costs and expanded remediation and land use options to the point where a remedy fits a land use, or vice versa. Each of the presentations in this panel will serve to put these advances in perspective and provide insight on how they can best be considered at sites across the world.
