The objective of this presentation is to highlight how site-specific target levels (SSTLs) can be used to guide remedial efforts on contaminated sites and result in reduced financial and environmental costs. We will provide examples which demonstrate how the use of SSTLs can decrease the amount of resources, waste, carbon emissions, and time associated with a project; all of which can improve overall project sustainability and decrease environmental impact.
