Contaminated land France
Site presenting a real or potential long-lasting risk for 
human health or the environment as a result of the pollution
of a given milieu, resulting from former or current human
activity
Increasing attention has been paid to contaminated sites 
and soil in France over the last 15 years. This has resulted
in new laws, methodological guidelines for contaminated
site management and systems of financing. These tools,
like those of other European countries, are based on risk
assessment and management approaches.
