It explains the basic elements of a contingency plan, and covers control activities and spill countermeasures for land spills, including low and high pressure washing, sand blasting, soil washing, physical removal, mechanical removal, vacuum pumping, use of sorbents, degradation and bioremediation.

"Countermeasures On Land" also discusses the potential impact of various treatment methods, and covers appropriate safety precautions that must be taken by responders, including use of protective equipment and safety plans.
