Le logiciel Traces : un outil d'aide à la gestion des risques liés aux sites et sols pollués

Abstract : The two last centuries of uncontrolled industrialization have produced large amounts of brownfields, wastes dumps, landfills... in most of occidental countries. These sites, having used or produced hazardous or toxic substances, are potentially contaminated sites. The last official inventory of the Ministry of Environment in France has established 896 polluted sites for an estimated 200,000 potentially contaminated sites from the professionals of this domain. The problem related to these sites is the capability of the pollution to migrate from the soil to the surface water, the groundwater, and the air and finally to have an impact on living organisms (human, fauna, flora). Questions which are to be solved are then the extent and impact of the contamination and the alternatives to remediate it. The scientific and technical complexity added to the lack of (public or private) money make it hard to correctly manage these sites. For this purpose, a decision support system was developed in order to provide a rational, standardized and easy approach of potentially contaminated sites, and was called Traces (Tool for Risk Assessment from Chemical Exposure to Soils).
