Lead remediation is the process of reducing the amount of lead in the environment, usually in soil, water, or air.
Lead is a heavy metal that is toxic to humans and animals, and is found in many places including paint, gasoline, water pipes, and soil.
Lead contamination is a major environmental health concern, as it can cause serious neurological and developmental problems, especially in children.
Lead remediation typically involves the removal of lead from the environment, either through physical means such as excavation and removal of contaminated soil, or chemical means such as using a chemical to bind the lead and make it less toxic.
Remediation may also involve the use of natural or artificial barriers such as impermeable liners to prevent the spread of lead–contaminated soil or water.
