Remediation, Near Surface Disposal & Long-term Stewardship

CRESP assesses, recommends and develops approaches aimed at improving the evaluation, effectiveness and efficiency of remediation and risk mitigation techniques for contaminated environmental resources. Resources include soils, ground water, surface water, sediments and biota.

Project activities range from:

  • Improving methods for characterizing contaminated environmental media
  • Monitoring the effectiveness of remediation processes and near surface disposal systems
  • Reducing uncertainty in contaminant environmental fate and transport; and
  • Developing improved treatment processes.

CRESP also evaluates and develops approaches for more efficient and effective methods for regulatory compliance, natural resource damage assessment, end-state definition and risk communication associated with remediation and potential future use of resources.
