Remediation can certainly be expensive, it's a lot easier to not spill chemicals into the soil and groundwater than clean them up. That being said, there are many proven technologies for this, particularly for petroleum. Calling it a bureaucratic nightmare is a bit extreme though. MA has a very well defined set of regulations (the Massachusetts Contingency Plan) that has been around for 25 years now and is well understood by the industry
