September 14, 2007

The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) published a provisional manual in 2005 for the excavation and storage of agricultural chemicals stored underground. The revision has been made to reflect the situation regarding the excavation sites and to incorporate the intent behind the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Law of Japan in the handling and treatment of soil polluted by persistent organic pollutants.
The MOE invites comments from the public regarding the manual. Comments will be accepted from September 14 to October 15, 2007. Comments need to be submitted in Japanese.
