It has therefore become more common to apply a standard of remediation that renders sites sufficiently ‘clean’ for their current or proposed use. A site-based risk management approach can be used to inform the decision as to which standard and method of remediation is appropriate in each case (Preston 2008: 167). One of the consequences of the multifunctionality approach, particularly at the time it was first implemented, was that it necessitated the use of intrusive remedial techniques. To ensure that a very high standard of soil quality was attained, contaminants were often removed and treated off-site, or secured within thick concrete casing (Vegter 2001: 98).

Each stakeholder has a particular role in the aftercare process, whether it is implementation, monitoring or enforcing the relevant institutional and engineering controls. Ideally, their responsibilities are clearly defined in a legal or other formal document to ensure the smooth and timely operation of post-remediation measures (World Federation of Scientists 2004: 4). However, legal, political and practical obstacles often do prevent remediated sites from being returned to use within an appropriate timeframe.

However, the UECA leaves some aspects of long-term site management to be dealt with by Federal or State governments. For example, each State may decide the relevant remediation standards that are to apply to affected sites, and whether liability for remediation should be limited and/or transferable between parties. Individual site remediation plans must still be approved by Federal or State regulatory agencies, and one of these agencies must be a signatory to the environmental covenant. In addition, notice of the environmental covenant must be provided to all relevant parties with an interest in the site (Kerr 2006: 1).
