Implementing Institutional Controls at Brownfields and Other
Contaminated Sites
Product Code: 5350098
Publisher: American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and
Author: Amy L. Edwards


Most brownfields cleanups have relied on institutional and engineering
controls as part of the remedy, although the implementation, monitoring,
and enforcement of these controls is one of the most difficult issues
affecting contaminated property cleanup and redevelopment. The critical
role of institutional controls has recently been highlighted by the 2001
Brownfields Amendments, and as a result a key element in the future
success of brownfields redevelopment will rest on understanding and
effectively using risk-based corrective action, including institutional
and engineering controls.

Implementing Institutional Controls at Brownfields and Other
Contaminated Sites, the first book on this important and evolving topic,
provides a thorough grounding in the history and current use of
institutional controls. Emphasizing federal, state and public
perspectives, this compendium of articles written by over 43 experts in
the field offers real estate and environmental practitioners a
state-of-the-art review of a subject that is integral to the success and
growth of brownfields redevelopment projects.

Beginning with an overview of institutional controls, Part I of the
manual also examines some of the emerging tools that can be used in
brownfields redevelopment, including custodial trusts, one-call systems,
and web-based tracking systems. It also discusses the benefits of the
proposed uniform model law on environmental covenants (UECA). Part II
addresses the federal perspective, including the statutory and
regulatory framework for the use of institutional controls in CERCLA and
RCRA. The state perspective is covered in Part III, looking at the
varying use of these controls in several states, including Arizona,
California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Maine. "Experience
in the Field" is the focus of Part IV, which reviews how these controls
have been used, highlights recent case studies, and draws conclusions on
what can be learned from these successes and failures. A wealth of
appendices provides quick, one-source access to relevant documents and
forms, including the flow chart from the ASTM Standard Guide on the Use
of Activity and Use Limitations, Including Institutional and Engineering
Controls (E 2091), final fact sheets from the Environmental Protection
Agency for site managers at Superfund and RCRA sites, guidance from the
Department of Defense, and state documents referenced in the text.
