Within the past few years a large number of environmental remediation projects have been completed that are now in postclosure monitoring. What lessons can be learned from these projects? Perhaps more importantly, how can decision-makers best apply this information to future projects? To find out, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin studied site documentation and postclosure monitoring data from three Superfund projects completed in the mid- to late-eighties: the French Ltd. Site in Crosby, Texas; the Sikes site, also in Crosby, Texas; and the Belvidere site in Belvidere, Illinois.
