We've made some changes to EPA.gov. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot.

EPA's website will operate in a diminished capacity on Saturday Feb 17, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to noon EST for routine maintenance. Some services, such as search, may be temporarily unavailable for brief periods during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Technologies for Cleaning Up Contaminated Sites

EPA uses a variety of technologies to ensure contaminants are either removed from a site or treated so they no longer pose a threat to human health and the environment. These web pages provide information for technical staff, regulators, site owners and researchers to help identify contaminants and assess their potential threats, characterize and investigate sites, and treat or remove contaminants.
