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
"From Love Canal to the present day, no topic has cast a longer shadow across the American environmental landscape than the Superfund program and the challenge of cleaning up toxic waste sites. Reclaiming the Land covers the full range of Superfund issues with both historical perspective and a dynamic set of forward-looking reform proposals. It is essential reading for anyone and everyone in the environmental arena."
- Daniel C. Esty, Professor, Yale University
"This book represents the most comprehensive critical analysis of how the Superfund program can remain a relevant and meaningful part of this nation's environmental arsenal. Rather than maintaining the status quo, adapting to the changed conditions in which this vital statute is implemented now and in the future is the only logical way to proceed. We owe it to the communities this law was designed to protect to seriously consider these recommendations."
- Elliott P. Laws, Counsel, Pillsbury Winthrop and Former Assistant Administrator, Solid Waste and Emergency Response, United States Environmental Protection Agency
"Reclaiming the Land represents an important contribution to the literature on environmental stewardship in general, and hazardous waste site cleanup in particular. Appropriate focus is placed on institutional approaches, community involvement, and the iterative approach of adaptive management, with contributions from landscape architects, urban planners, systems engineers, economists, and leaders in business and government agencies."
- Mitchell J. Small, H. John Heinz III Professor of Environmental Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University
