Short description: In August 2006, the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation brought together 18 federal and local government, academic, and private sector experts to answer questions about using soil amendments in remediating, revitalizing, and reusing contaminated lands. A new tool to encourage and assist site cleanup managers to use soil amendments for remediation, revitalization, and reuse of their sites resulted from this collaboration. The Use of Soil Amendments for Remediation, Revitalization, and Reuse is a white paper that describes soil amendments, the advantages of using them, the types of environmental problems and contaminants they can address, the types of sites where they can be used, and regulatory and other issues related to using them. It focuses on the use of amendments on sites dominated by inorganic contaminants, although they also can be used to address volatile and semivolatile contaminants that have left sites barren of vegetation.
