This fact sheet addresses the use of analytical data to establish areas of observed contamination at hazardous waste sites when evaluating the soil exposure pathway under the Hazard Ranking System (HRS) (40 CFR Part 300). The data may also be used to evaluate hazardous waste quantity for some HRS source types. The soil exposure pathway is evaluated only if observed contamination is established based on analytical data. Factors that are critical to determine observed contamination include the concentration levels of contaminants, and the area of contamination. An integrated sampling approach under the Superfund Accelerated Cleanup Model (SACM) should be considered when planning the sampling strategy to establish observed contamination.
