The WARRP Decon-13 Subject Matter Expert (SME) Meeting, hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC), was held in Denver, Colorado, on August 14-15, 2012, at the Denver Animal Shelter (DAS). The purpose of the SME Meeting was to (1) identify existing technologies and methodologies that may help to minimize wastes, segregate waste streams, keep higher activity wastes separate from lower activity wastes, and, thereby, minimize cleanup and disposal costs, and (2) scope out what a draft standard operational guideline (SOG) might look like to assist in the cleanup and recovery of a wide-area RDD incident.
