The guidance document provides procedures for developing human and ecological health-based cleanup levels for contaminated sites undergoing corrective action and clean closure under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The procedures are presented in a step-by-step approach intended for use by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permit writers and regulatory compliance officials. The analysis presented here will enable RCRA site managers to identify sites for which federal or state promulgated action levels may be used as cleanup criteria, versus sites requiring exposure-based risk calculations to address site-specific problems. This document also describes situations that are likely to require expert technical assistance. Application of these procedures is intended for RCRA sites where hazardous waste or hazardous constituents have been released and where contaminated environmental media (that is, soil, surface water, sediment, groundwater, or air) and contaminant concentrations have been identified by means of environmental sampling and analysis.
