The Regional Superfund Ground Water Forum is a group of ground-water scientists representing EPA's Regional Offices, organized to exchange up-to-date information related to ground-water remediation at hazardous waste sites. Soil characterization at hazardous waste sites is an issue identified by the forum as a concern of CERCLA decision-makers. Soil characterization provides data types required for decision making in three distinct RI/FS tasks: (1) Determination of the nature and extent of soil contamination. (2) Risk assessment, and determination of risk-based soil clean-up levels. (3) Determination of the potential effectiveness of soil remediation alternatives.
