Safe Housing for Lightly Contaminated Lands
Abandoned urban industrial lands are being redeveloped for housing, many with residual contamination on the site. Developers, environmental consultants, and regulatory bodies often use site specific risk assessments to determine the degree of risk to occupants due to the unremoved contaminants. Risk assessments predict the potential exposure to contaminants that residents of the buildings will face. This project was only partially successful, primarily because the builders or developers on brownfields did not fully participate in the study. In the one case that fully met the study parameters, the actual risks were in line with those predicted, and fell within acceptable guidelines.
