Measuring success in land reclamation – A joint government and industry workshop

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The question we are faced with today is: How do we establish a system or systems for measuring success in reclamation? That is a challenge that has been going on for quite sometime for all of us, in one way or another. We have tried to apply some useful process and have either failed in part, or we have succeeded in part. But, we have never really all got together and talked about it and directed our attention to finally getting a system that we are comfortable with, we know that will work, an, at the same time, gives us a sure footing for all the work we do from the planning right through to the certification of our reclaimed land. There has been an evolution of thought in this business but perhaps one of the major problems that we have all stumbled on is semantics – ‘what does a word mean’? We all know that we carry around some different images in our minds of what a word will mean and today we hope we can bring those images down to a single focus and instead of it being a blurred image it can be a sharp image.
