Most EPA Regions have established groups of scientists to advise and assist site managers with ecological studies produced in conjunction with Remedial Investigations and Feasibility Studies and Removal Actions at Superfund sites. In general, these groups are known as Biological Technical Assistance Groups or BTAGs, although some regions use different names. The bulletin summarizes the BTAG structure and function in the Superfund process. Its purpose is to help site managers understand how BTAGs can assist with the collection and evaluation of site information and ensure that ecological effects are properly considered. ECO Updates are a series of Intermittent Bulletins intended to facilitate ecological assessment of Superfund sites. These bulletins serve as supplements to Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund Volume 2: Environmental Evaluation Manual (9285.7-01).
