Assessment of the potential risk on environment during the rehabilitation of a polluted site; Evaluation du risque potentiel sur l'environnement lors de la rehabilitation d'un site pollue

Abstract

Soil contamination is a recent problem. In the same way as water and air, industrial soil contamination induces a risk to human health and a threaten to environmental protection, thus it has to be cleaned up too. As french policy in this domain has been developing since the 1990's, then most of the guideline tools for managing contaminated sites still have to be developed. For this purpose, a work was engaged on the opportunity to elaborate, from the experience of other industrial countries and current knowledge, methodological management support tools for contaminated sites, especially for: the assessment of the degree of contamination of the site, in particular with the characterization of the hazard and risk levels related to the site. This has lead to the development of a tool, named TRACES (Tool for Risk assessment from Chemical Exposure to Soils), allowing a progressive and sequential diagnosis in view to establish both the opportunity to conduct a cleanup action and the remedial objectives to be reached, the identification of the most adapted technology for the remediation of the contaminated soils, based on a multi-criteria analysis method, ELECTRE III, that integrates multiple, potentially conflicting points of view according to the stakeholders.

This is the RACES's (Remedial Alternative Classification and Evaluation System) main goal. Through the use of these tools, we pointed out the importance of such methodological tools to facilitate and accelerate decision making with a structured, objective and clear approach for managing contaminated sites.
