Abstract: The impact of rapid industrialization around the globe and unsafe waste management practices have become increasingly significant within the last two decades as the disclosed number of unengineered facilities and contaminated sites steadily grow and the anticipated remediation costs increase. A new service sector is emerging across the world in waste containment, soil remediation and environmental restoration. The need to accomplish the tasks given in environmental restoration and waste management places a new responsibility on the services of the civil engineer. It requires collaboration between geotechnical and environmental engineers and prompts the need to cooperate with the chemical, mechanical and electrical engineers, chemical environmental scientists, microbiologists, groundwater hydrologists and geologists resulting in the evolution of a geoenvironmental engineering subdiscipline.
