The document presents case studies illustrating various methods that have been used at Superfund sites to calculate soil cleanup levels based on the potential for hazardous constituents to migrate to and contaminate ground water. In addition, several methods for which case studies could not be identified have been included in a separate section. The purpose of the document is not to recommend specific methods; none of the methods or example analyses have been verified over the long-term. The compendium should be viewed as a resource which illustrates the importance of assessing the impact of soil contaminants on ground water and the effects various parameters have on contaminant migration through the unsaturated zone.
