Because of the author’s vantage point, this chapter is necessarily based on experience in ground-water remediation in the United States. Much of that experience has been gained over the last fifteen years in responding to the requirements of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act or CERCLA, a law passed by the U.S. federal government in 1980. CERCLA is more commonly known as “Superrund,” although the prefix “Super” is an anachronism dating back to the time when $1.6 billion was thought to be a lot of money to complete a nationwide cleanup of the effects of hazardous waste disposal.
