Abstract

Contamination of the subsurface environment with hazardous and toxic wastes has become the number one environmental problem. In the United States, a national cleanup effort has begun under C.E.R.C.L.A., the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (42 USC 9601 et seq., 1980), commonly known as Superfund, and its subsequent reauthorization under S.A.R.A., the Superfund Amendments Reauthorization Act (P.L. 99–499, October 17, 1986). Over 30 000 sites have been identified, each having the potential for the introduction of contaminants into the subsurface environment. Over 1000 sites have been specifically identified under the Superfund Program as requiring cleanup or remediation; these constitute the National Priorities List (N.P.L.). The geotechnical engineer will continue to play a key role in the assessment and cleanup of hazardous waste sites. More often than not, hazardous waste site conditions include contamination of groundwater and soil, necessitating control and remediation systems interacting with the subsurface environment.
