Contents Notes
"This study produced a general decontamination guide for use by those responsible for decontamination activities at Superfund sites. It contains stepwise guidance for developing a cost-effective decontamination strategy, descriptions of methods for treating or removing contaminants from structural materials, case studies illustrating field use of many decontamination methods, cost analyses for the application of each method to a model building, a discussion of worker health and safety precautions, and a summary of available sampling techniques for measuring contamination levels both before and after cleanup. Additional research is recommended to 1) verify the effectiveness of existing decontamination methods for a range of contaminants and structural materials, 2) develop and demonstrate new cleanup techniques, and 3) improve sampling techniques for determining structural contamination."
