This technical/regulatory guidance document was prepared by the ITRC Sampling, Characterization and Monitoring (SCM) Team and serves to introduce new concepts regarding the manner in which environmental work is conducted. This document is atypical for the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council in that it does not report on a new technology per se but introduces new concepts to the manner in which environmental work is conducted. These concepts can increase effectiveness and quality and save project money. These ideas aren't new but have been developed into a logical approach for environmental project management. The concepts embodied in the three legs of the Triad approach are (1) systematic project planning, (2) dynamic work strategies, and (3) real-time measurement technologies. The Triad approach can be thought of as an initiative to update the environmental restoration process by providing a better union of scientific and societal factors involved in the resolution of contamination issues. It does this by emphasizing better investigation preparation (systematic project planning), greater flexibility while performing field work (dynamic work strategies), and advocacy of real-time measurement technologies, including field-generated data. The central concept that joins all of these ideas is the need to understand and manage uncertainties that affect decision making. The Triad approach consists of ideas that have been formulated previously but are now united to form a new paradigm for environmental project management.
