This guidance is intended to help Superfund risk managers make ecological risk management decisions that are based on sound science, consistent across Regions, and present a characterization of site risks that is transparent to the public. It provides risk managers with six principles to consider when making ecological risk management decisions. The ability to make sound ecological risk management decisions is dependent upon the quality and extent of information provided in the ecological risk assessment (ERA). The principles provided in this guidance supplement (the ERAGS guidance) and (PB97-963211) will aid remedial Project managers (RPMs) and on-scene coordinators (OSCs) in planning ERAs of appropriate scope and complexity and in identifying response alternatives in the feasibility study or engineering evaluation/cost analysis that are protective of the environment.
