The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA) requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to revise the Hazard Ranking System (HRS) so that, to the maximum extent feasible, it accurately assesses the relative risks associated with actual or potential releases of hazardous substances from a site. EPA initiated a field test of the proposed HRS revisions to help assess the costs and implementation concerns associated with the modifications. The field test major objectives are: To test the feasibility of implementing the new and expanded proposed revised HRS factors; To determine the resources required (i.e., costs and technical hours) for specific tasks under the proposed revised HRS; and To assess the availability of information that would be needed for the evaluation of sites with the proposed revised HRS and to identify difficulties with its use. The Agency tested the proposed revised HRS by performing inspections at 29 sites nationwide.
