This first phase of the Nationwide Fund-lead Pump and Treat Optimization Project successfully identified a total of 88 Fund-lead (EPA-lead and State-lead with Fund money) pump-and-treat (P&T) systems within the Superfund Program. Of the 88 systems identified, 67 are operational and 21 are preoperational (i.e., the Records of Decisions for the pre-operational systems specify pump-and-treat, but these systems are in the design stage or some other stage prior to full operation). System identification was accomplished through use of online databases and discussions with project liaisons in each Region. The number of Fund-lead P&T systems in a Region ranged from zero in Region 8 to 22 in Region 2. Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) of the identified systems submitted data and information on their systems through a web-based questionnaire. Phone interviews were utilized in a limited number of cases. A screening methodology using the collected data was applied to prioritize these systems with respect to potential life-cycle savings resulting from optimization. Based on this screening and discussions with the project liaison in each Region, specific systems in each Region were selected to receive Remediation System Evaluations (RSEs). The RSE process was developed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to evaluate a remediation system and provide recommendations to improve effectiveness and reduce costs. Including the demonstration optimization project conducted in 2000, a total of 20 Fund-lead P&T systems were selected to receive RSEs. This report identifies the 88 Fund-lead P&T systems, summarizes the information submitted by the RPMs, and presents the screening and selection of those systems to receive RSEs.
