Selection of remedial treatments for contaminated land. A guide to good practice (C622)

The guide presents best practice methodology for the selection of remedial treatments. It is aimed at a broad spectrum of practitioners, including project and development managers, consultants, contractors, operators, regulators, local authorities and clients.

The user is taken through the various stages by which remedial techniques for treating contaminated land are identified, screened and selected, highlighting the key stages and providing pointers towards best practice. The treatment technologies screening matrix is a useful decision-making tool and guidance is provided on UK legislative regimes and sources of further information on technical and scientific aspects of remediation.

Key words: contaminated land, ground improvement.
