This document describes a strategy to focus waste research at a national level to reduce the greatest risks to people and the environment. This strategy identifies four research topic areas which correspond to the major waste-related environmental problems (contaminated ground water, contaminated soil/vadose zone, emissions from waste combustion facilities, and active waste management facilities). The strategy prioritizes research activities that ORD should undertake through Fiscal Year 2000 (FY00). This report is organized into three chapters. Chapter 1 summarizes the major waste problems facing the United States, associated risks to human health and the environment, and costs of proper management and cleanup. Chapter 2 contains the essence of the strategy. It first lists waste research needs; then describes the four environmental problem areas plus technical support along with related research activities for each topic; and finally presents the ranking of the activities with the rationables from the rankings. The conclusions of the strategy are discussed in Chapter 3 along with outstanding issues that require further evaluation.
