AbstractThe city of L'Acide has contracted with the engineering firm Benebaction Inc., to remediate at 3 hectare hazardous waste site from an old firing range that was deeded to the city by the military shortly after the Korean War. The city has already contracted with a architectural firm to design a combined residential and commercial center on the site, including an elementary school. This case includes a number of scenarios that can be used in a class discussion setting, as well as a number of follow up questions.
NotesThis case is included in the book Environmental Biotechnology: A Biosystems Approach by Dan Vallero, Academic Press, edition 1, 2010.
