pub_fac_kirkwood_manufactured_sitesThe main focus of Manufactured Sites is the legacy of industrial production and pollutants on the contemporary landscape and their influence on new scientific research, innovative site technologies, and progressive site design. These address a range of sites including disturbed land, wetlands, urban brownfields, derelict waterfronts and despoiled extraction and mining sites. The book draws on the interdisciplinary nature of this work to present a legal, regulatory, scientific, engineering, and design introduction and overview to the subject. Topics included are soil bioremediation, phytoremediation, brownfield development, structural soil, subsurface flow wetlands, landfills, bioengineering for soil and water quality.
