The Geospatial Analysis for Optimization at Environmental Sites document provides information about using geospatial methods in all project life cycle stages: release detection, site characterization, remediation, monitoring and closure. The document provides a needed resource to state regulators, practitioners and stakeholders about using geospatial analysis to support decisions on optimization.
The Remediation Process Optimization (RPO) documents address how to conduct a technical and programmatic assessment of cleanup system performance and effectiveness to achieve a timely site closeout. An RPO review looks at all processes affecting cleanup effectiveness: cleanup systems, established cleanup levels, established procedures to verify attainment of cleanup goals, and readiness to support a five-year review or any other part of a regulation-mandated process. Other topics that are addressed are life-cycle cost analysis; exit strategies; above ground treatment technologies; data management, analysis, and visualization techniques; and performance-based management.
