Environmental Security & Restoration
Argonne's work in environmental security and restoration addresses soil, surface water, sediment, and groundwater at contaminated sites.

Argonne's work in environmental restoration addresses soil, surface water, sediment, and groundwater at contaminated sites, starting with environmental evaluations and planning projects. Assessments are also conducted of approaches for long-term stewardship of remediated sites with residual contamination. Remedies range from precise excavations to innovative combinations of engineered wetlands and phytoremediation.

Argonne researchers conduct approaches for long-term stewardship of remediated sites with residual contamination. The objective of environmental security programs is to support efforts to reduce national and international threat from nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons.
