In response to the threat to human health and the environment posed by numerous uncontrolled hazardous waste sites across the country, new remedial action technologies are evolving and known technologies are being retrofitted and adapted for use in cleaning up these sites. This report identifies and assesses the various types of site response activities which have been implemented, are in progress, or have been proposed to date at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites across the United States. A nationwide survey was conducted in which 395 uncontrolled hazardous waste sites across the U.S. were identified where some form of remedial action was planned, was presently ongoing, or has been completed. Each of these sites was assessed and the results are presented. Based on these survey findings, a total of 23 sites were selected for detailed case study investigations. Case study reports include extensive discussions of the remedial responses at each of the 23 sites with respect to technology, cost, and institutional framework. Technological, cost, and institutional data for the 23 case study sites are summarized in several user guidance indices.
