Technologies for Cleaning Up Contaminated Sites

Contaminants must be identified and their potential threat assessed, sites must be characterized and investigated, and media must be treated or removed to address contamination. EPA uses a wide variety of technologies in these activities to ensure contaminants are either removed from the site or are treated so they no longer pose a threat to human health and the environment. Information on these technologies and methodologies for cleaning up contaminated sites has been provided here for technical staff, regulators, site owners, and researchers.
