In ecological risk evaluations of contaminated sites, soil quality is determined on the basis of total contaminant concentration. These measured total concentrations are compared with Soil Quality Standards of the relevant contaminants. If the soil concentration exceeds the Soil Quality Standards, a supplementary risk evaluation can be performed to determine whether a site needs remediation.
