Restoration is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "bringing back
to a former position or condition". Restoration returns the property
to pristine conditions. As contaminated sites are remediated, some
properties will be redeveloped and others, restored.
With all the talk of redevelopment, why would there be in interest
in restoration? Restoration is often based on the desire to restore
natural habitats and ecosystems. Restoration may be mechanism to
tackle water quality issues or address community values. Depending
on the type and extent of contamination, restoring a contaminated
site to pristine conditions may not be feasible. However, innovative
approaches, creative funding sources and diverse partnerships can
assist in converting property back.
