The manual was specifically prepared for implementing a standardized evaluation system for the EPA Office of Drinking Water Surface Impoundment Assessment. The manual describes a first round evaluation system for rating the ground water contamination potential of surface impoundments. The evaluation system contains eight steps: rating the unsaturated zone, rating the ground water availability, rating the ground water quality, rating the waste hazard potential, computing the overall ground water contamination potential, rating the potential endangerment to current users of the ground water, rating the investigator's confidence in the data, miscellaneous identifiers.
