The land degraded by industrial activity or natural elements is uninteresting for investors; consequently, there have been no studies on the economic value of such land, in spite of its increasing amount. Methodologies exist assessing construction and agricultural lands but these methods are not adequate for the assessment of the degraded land. This paper introduces a new methodology to assess the land contaminated by heavy metals and regularly inundated. Simultaneously, this paper offers solutions of the best use of such degraded land.Keywords:
