The Air Force used a dynamic field activity (i.e., a project that combines on-site data generation with on-site decision making) to meet CERCLA soil and sediment cleanup requirements at Loring Air Force Base. The use of field-based analytical methods in the base-wide surface water/sediment remediation action provided defensible data that met the project objective of ensuring that soil and sediment contamination in excess of remediation goals would not reach potential human and environmental receptors. The dynamic field activity saved the Air Force more than 50 percent of the analytical costs and approximately 25 percent of the totalproject cost by helping to compress the remediation and restoration schedule from three to two construction seasons (i.e., May through October).
