As a form of land restoration, land rehabilitation is the process of returning the land in any given area back to its former state. Typically, contractors are hired to rehabilitate a site after it experiences of industrial damage or natural disasters. Land degradation is an issue that effects over a billion people across the globe. Farmers, those living in rural communities are most effected by land degradation due to the decline in productive capacity of the land and its value as an economic resource. Site rehabilitation processes tend to vary and can be dependent on the site location; however, the general process to beginning land rehabilitation is the same across the board.

The Site Rehabilitation Process

The purpose of rehabilitation is to landscape the area to where reshaping occurs. Habitats that include colonization of insects and invertebrates are restored by using original rocks and timber materials. Construction work requires land clearing in order to attain land reclamation, therefore, chemicals fuel spills, exposed materials and garbage tend to reach the runoffs of storm water. Across the nation, each state is required to obtain a stormwater permit before beginning any construction-based work. Site closures are next to take place during this process. Site closures occur when a landfill or disposal site no longer receives waste and can be cleared to start post closure maintenance. Closures ensure that disposal sites will abide to state performance and minimum substantive requirements of approved constructions plans.

Applying Integrated Vegetation Management with Revegetation

Integrated vegetation management is the practice of promoting desirable communities using environmentally sound, and cost-effective control methods. As a final solution to closure of a landfill, revegetation is a great way to begin the integrated vegetation management process. A manmade rewilding project, revegetation consists of rebuilding and replanting the soil of the disturbed land, which is essential to decline soil erosion. In addition to repairing damages made to the land caused by natural disasters, revegetation benefits the environment by providing shelter, allotting a cooler regional climate and preserving biodiversity.

After Land and Site Rehabilitation

Once full rehabilitation has taken place, it is important to monitor the ecological development of rehabilitated sites. When highlighted areas of a site are monitored, it leaves room for feedback for future rehabilitation projects—making the process easier for contractors and workers. After rehabilitation, the land is restored and goes back to suitable living grounds and provides to our economy necessary resources.
