I'm pretty dead-set against make work projects in general, but this is one case where the work in question is definitely needed, and not easily obtained.

Serious remediation is expensive and highly-skilled work. Heavy metals are very toxic, and don't just break down over time. It isn't just about carting away barrels or digging out all the work. Tests need to be run to see what's there, a strategy for dealing with it needs to be developed, and then a host of tests must be run again to ensure that it worked. There's enormous safety issues for workers, and permanent problems if it isn't done right. This is not a task which can be half-assed by some slumlord's "contractors".
