What is the difference between remediation and reclamation?
Remediation is the process of removing contaminants from soil and water that may impact the ecosystem of a site. Activities during this phase may include soil removal or treatment, water treatment, tank removal and facility decommissioning. Site remediation activities required depends on the previous uses of the site.
Reclamation is the process of returning a site to its pre-disturbed state. Activities can include site contouring, revegetation, creation of micro-sites to support habitat development and final reclamation reporting.
