|Description||The Department of Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup Program manages the cleanup of contaminated sites to protect human health and the environment. This document provides guidance to cleanup project managers who manage these sites to 1) understand the risks to cleanup sites associated with a changing climate and 2) increase the resilience of cleanup sites at each phase of the cleanup process: site investigations; remedy selection, design, and implementation; and operation and maintenance. By putting adaptation measures into place during the early stages of a cleanup, we may increase the number of feasible cleanup options, maximize their integrity, and in some situations, reduce their cost.
A two-page fact sheet was published concurrently with this guidance, which provides a brief overview of why this guidance was needed, what it contains, and how it can be used. See “Climate Change and Cleanup” fact sheet, Publication No. 17-09-058, https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/publications/SummaryPages/1709058.html
