|Description||The Washington State Department of Ecology works to prevent and remove contamination that can harm your health and environment. Cleanup project managers (also called site managers) work with people to remove that contamination.
This guidance helps people make those cleanup sites more resilient against the impacts of climate change, like flooding or extreme storms, so the remedy continues to protect your health and neighborhood.
The document provides a framework and recommendations for:
1. Assessing risks associated with a changing climate by doing a site-specific vulnerability assessment.
2. Identifying adaptation measures that increase climate-change resilience across a range of cleanup sites in different phases: site
investigation; identifying resilient cleanup remedies, remedial design and implementation; and operation and maintenance.
3. Identifying green remediation best management practices to increase the environmental benefits and reduce the environmental impacts from
In November 2017, we published this as *Adaptation Strategies for Resilient Cleanup Remedies: A Guide for Cleanup Project Managers to Increase the Resilience of Toxic Cleanup Sites to the Impacts from Climate Change.*
In January 2023, we revised the title and content.
