valor de intervención

In the context of land clean-up, the "valor de intervención" is the concentration value of a certain pollutant in soil above which action is required to be taken to clean up the pollutant. Is there an equivalent expression in English? Or is it simply the limit value?

    I suggest "valor de intervención" = "clean-up value".

    Quote from the web
    "A soil clean-up value is defined at a level of soil pollution above which serious harmful effects for humans or the environment might occur, taking into account the characteristics and functions of the soil."
