In the US, Western, Central and Eastern Europe there are many large scale polluted sites that are simply too large to be cleaned up with available technologies. They are polluted by mining activities and smelters, and consist of large industrial sites, polluted sediments in water ways and impoundments and polluted soils. In addition new large scale polluted sites are being created under conditions of no or little environmental control. Since these large scale polluted areas are expected to be present for many years, it is necessary to take a long term view of the metal mobility and of the capacity of these areas to retain contaminants.
