Emergency response actions at chemical spills and abandoned hazardous waste sites often require rapid assessment of the potential for groundwater contamination by the chemical or waste compound. This manual provides a rapid assessment methodology for performing such an evaluation within a 24-hour emergency response time frame so that emergency actions can be taken. The methodology consists of a decision flowchart, graphical travel times through soils and groundwater, and guidelines for estimating required parameters representing critical contaminant and site characteristics. In addition to the components of the methodology, this manual discusses critical compound and site characteristics, describes assumptions and limitations of the procedures, provides auxiliary sources of information (to supplement this manual) and presents example applications.
