Nearly thirty years after creation of the most advanced and expensive hazardous waste cleanup infrastructure in the world, "Reclaiming the Land" provides a much-needed lens through which the Superfund program should be assessed and reshaped. Focusing on the lessons of adaptive management, it explores new concepts and tools for the cleanup and reuse of contaminated sites, and for dealing with the uncertainty inherent in long-term site stewardship. Its contributors include scholars and practitioners representing many decades of experience with the Superfund program as well as a variety of disciplines."This excellent collection provides a range of perspectives on making the Superfund program work even better for the American people. The unifying concept of adaptive management offers broad, generally applicable ways of improving cleanup and reuse of many types of contaminated sites." - Carol M.Browner, Principal, The Albright Group and Former Administrator, United States Environmental Protection Agency.
