Short description: A methodology based on risk assessment and source-pathway-receptor-analysis, that leads to the derivation of site-specific remediation criteria, is presented. A tiered approach is used that allows structured decision making, cost-benefit analysis and progressive data collection and analysis 
Long description: A methodology based on risk assessment and source-pathway-receptor-analysis, that leads to the derivation of site-specific remediation criteria, is presented. A tiered approach is used that allows structured decision making, cost-benefit analysis and progressive data collection and analysis. This enables low-risk sites to be screened out so that attention can be focused on high risk sites. The methodology builds on previous Environment Agency Technical Reports P12 and P13. The report is intended to be of use to site owners and their consultants and provides an accepted basis for discussion with the Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency
