Treatment of Lead-Contaminated Soils (RREL)

This bulletin summarizes the contents of a seminar on treatment of lead-contaminated soils presented on August 28, 1990, to  Region V Superfund and RCRA personnel by members of EPA’s Engineering and Treatment Technology Support Center located in the Risk Reduction Engineering Laboratory (RREL) in Cincinnati, Ohio. This bulletin is intended to summarize the information presented during the seminar and it should not be viewed as a definitive treatise on lead treatment technologies.
