The cost effectiveness of contaminated land remediation strategies

, : The cost effectiveness of contaminated land remediation strategies. Science of the Total Environment 201(2): 125-136

The cost benefit of remediation of two disused gasworks sites was examined, both in terms of the level of site investigation needed to minimise unforeseen costs in the subsequent remediation phase, and to compare the relative costs of alternative remediation techniques.
