Contents Notes
"Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, hazardous waste management facilities must apply for operating permits. Review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the present backlog of permit applications will cost approximately $40 million. The objectives of this project were to develop a conceptual design and implementation plan for an automated advisory system to make the review process more uniform and productive, and to aid in training new staff. The conceptual design of the advisory system is based on expert system technology. The system will be able to assist reviewers in making decisions that normally require expertise, in exercising analytical models and in generating correspondence and reports. A three-year implementation plan is proposed that incorporates field tests of prototype advisory system modules after 6 months time and deployment of partially completed advisory systems after the first year. Plans for advisory system maintenance, performance monitoring, and feedback from permit reviewers are recommended."
