Contaminated sites: In brief
informs about the state of the environment and reveals the links between driving forces, pressures, environmental quality, impacts and responses.
Remediation of contaminated sites
A large number of polluted sites can only be handled in steps for reasons of personnel, time and money. In principle, individual sites should be approached first at a global and then at an increasingly detailed level in order that those among the approximately 38'000 polluted sites requiring remediation or monitoring can be earmarked.
Financing remediation of contaminated sites
Who foots the bill for the investigation, monitoring and remediation of contaminated sites? Can financial assistance be provided by the federal government?
