Abstract:Landfarming is a cost effective solution to remediating soil and groundwater that have been impacted by pesticides. This remediation technique is a safe, sound and ideal solution for agribusinesses that want to take care of the environment without going bankrupt. With the promulgation of legislation allowing landfarming of pesticide contaminated or impacted soils, Illinois is progressing to explore alternative remediation technologies. Andrews Environmental Engineering, Inc. (ABEl) has permitted and managed the majority of the pesticide landfarming projects since authority was granted to the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) in July, 1990 to review and authorize these projects. This publication discusses, reviews and summarizes case studies on eighteen pesticide landfarming projects undertaken by ABEl.
