EPP Publications with Land Quality Management and r3 Environmental Technology have released an
update to the very successful 'Contaminated Land Management: Ready Reference'
Release 2, which is the first update to the Ready Reference, focuses on a major revision of the Risk
Management section to reflect the significant developments since the book was first published.
A substantial section has been added covering risk management techniques, principles and approaches.
The treatment approach tables have been revised, and follow an outline of the 'operating window'
Signposting to sources of general information, handbooks and case studies, including web links,
has been added for all techniques.
There are new tables on in situ thermal and fracturing techniques, and on the use of energy forestry
on contaminated land.
The chapter on options appraisal and implementation has been rewritten and extended, in particular
to take account of the Model Procedures.
Within Risk Assessment, the section on ecological risks has been much expanded to reflect the
significant developments in guidance in this sector. We have greatly benefited from the input of
Jason Weeks, who was responsible for much of the Environment Agency's guidance on Ecorisk. While
much has changed in human health risk assessment too, we will await the changes that will result from
the DEFRA Way Forward consultation before updating these tables. In the meantime, the LQM CIEH Generic
Assessment Criteria publication (available from http://www.lqm.co.uk) may be of interest.
