The document provides regional project managers, onsite coordinators, and their contractors with sampling and analysis methods for evaluating whether a soils remediation effort has been successful. The verification of cleanup by evaluating a site relative to a cleanup standard or applicable and relevant or appropriate requirement (ARAR) is discussed in section 121 of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA). In section 121 of SARA the 'attainment' of cleanup standards and ARARs is mentioned repeatedly. The manual, the first in a series, provides a technical interpretation of what sampling and data analysis methods are acceptable for verifying 'attainment' of a cleanup standard in soils and solid media.
