The purpose of the research effort was to provide technical guidance on planning and implementing safe and cost-effective response actions applicable to hazardous waste sites containing drums. The manual provides detailed technical guidance on methods, procedures, and equipment suitable for removing drummed wastes. Information is included on locating buried drum; excavation and onsite transfer; drum staging, opening, and sampling; waste consolidation; and temporary storage and shipping. Each of these operations is discussed in terms of the equipment and procedures used in carrying out specific activities; health and safety procedures; measures for protecting the environment and public welfare; and factors affecting costs. Information is also included on the applications and limitations of the following remedial measures for controlling or containing migration of wastes: surface capping, surface water controls, groundwater pumping, subsurface drains, slurry walls, and in-situ treatment techniques.
