The guidance document addresses remedial actions for the cleanup of surface impoundments (defined as a pit, pond, and/or lagoon) containing hazardous wastes. Guidance is provided for the scoping and performance of a limited remedial investigation (limited RI) and limited feasibility study (limited FS). The guidance manual is to be used as an aid to State and Federal staff and private firms for the implementation of a remedial action for the cleanup of hazardous wastes contained in surface impoundments. The manual is informative rather than prescriptive in nature. The basic objectives are to provide a concise description of the necessary steps to implement surface remedial actions for the cleanup of surface impoundments within the provisions of the National Contingency Plan (NCP). It must be emphasized that this guidance is not to be used as an absolute reference. Its use should be supplemented with other EPA guidance documents and technical reports/references as appropriate.
