Contents Notes
The Research Triangle Institute (RTI) began work for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 1983 to investigate contaminated sites in the United States where cleanup measures have been carried out to enable specific redevelopment of a site. This work resulted in a report issued by EPA in August 1986, documenting 16 uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Case studies presented land use history and redevelopment objectives, the nature of the contamination, descriptions of the remedial actions undertaken, the planned upgraded reuse of the property, and the criteria for cleanup. During the course of the study of U.S. sites, it became apparent that contaminated land reclamation and redevelopment were of international interest. Thus, the EPA study was extended to include experiences in certain European countries. This report presents highlights of programs dealing with contaminated land in England, Wales, Sweden, the Netherlands, and then the Federal Republic of Germany. This report is a companion document to the August 1986 EPA report addressing reclamation and redevelopment in the U.S. (EPA/600/2-86/066).
