"Revitalizing Contaminated Sites: Addressing Liability Concerns (The Revitalization Handbook)" (2011 Edition) summarizes the federal statutory provisions and EPA policy and guidance documents that address the potential liability concerns of parties involved in the cleanup and revitalization of contaminated sites.

The updated and reissued handbook, first issued in 1998, discusses the statutory protections under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, commonly known as Superfund), initiatives and guidance, and potential liability concerns under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
