The OSWER Exposure Modeling Subcommittee (OEMS) of the Environmental Engineering Committee of the Environmental Protection Agency's Science Advisory Board (SAB) reviewed the Agency's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) Composite Model for Leachate Migration with Transformation Products (EPACMTP) on March 8, 1995. The review examined the mathematical formulation, a site-based approach using hydrogeologic regions, and the metal speciation model (MINTEQ) linked to the EPACMTP model to assess the subsurface fate and transport of metals. The Subcommittee concluded that the mathematical formulation incorporating daughter products into the model appeared to be correct and quite useful. The regional site-based approach is better than the national distribution approach used in the previous model. In addition, the finite-source approach will be appropriate for regulatory analysis once the definition of the source term has been clarified and validated. The Subcommittee encourages the Agency to improve its documentation of the performance of its modules and to document how they had responded to past peer reviewer comments. The MINTEQ model for metal speciation is a valuable addition, but it needs to have further testing and other databases need to be consulted. Overall, the Subcommittee commends OSWER for its improvements to the EPACMTP model and its responsiveness to previous SAB suggestions.
