Summary:Soil and ground water must be protected from abandoned hazardous sites. In the Federal Republic of Germany, it is estimated that 5000 sites will need rehabilitation. Progress has been made in listing contaminated sites and abandoned industrial sites are being added to the list, systematic investigation and evaluation is only in its preparatory stage. Techniques which can render a site safe temporarily and permanent rehabilitation techniques must be distinguished and developed. This is being done with the support of the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology.—Modified author abstract.
