Integrated and efficient characterization of contaminated sites

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Volume 1 (Gruiz et al., 2014) of this book series discussed the problems of contaminated land and Volume 2 (Gruiz et al., 2015) dealt with the tools used to assess the adverse effects of environmental contaminants. This third volume looks into the concepts of contaminated land assessment, site investigation and innovative engineering tools for the management of contaminated water and soil. This Chapter 1 describes and assesses those sites already contaminated to prevent deterioration or further damage and specifies target quality and the extent of risk reduction. Chapter 2 continues this topic and concerns early warning and soft monitoring for the general observation of the environment. Management of contaminated and derelict land, and pollutant spills requires the integrated knowledge and tools of geotechnics, chemical engineering, agriculture, mining, land remediation and waste treatment. First, the problems must be explored, then the sites investigated, results evaluated, environmental and human risks assessed, socioeconomic impacts characterized and the best risk reduction measures selected. Stakeholders must be involved in the entire process. Experience gained from the management of chemicals, wastes, air, water and agricultural soils should also be applied to contaminated land.
