Site investigations is the first of three volumes of a methods manual prepared to give guidance on information gathering activities in support of the requirements specified in the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan. The National Contingency Plan contains a seven-phase approach to implementing the authority of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Each phase represents a level of response dependent upon the situation. Information must be obtained to determine the appropriate level of environmental response. Both remedial and enforcement actions under CERCLA require reliable site information. The volume describes approaches to obtaining the information and follows a semi-chronological order through subsequent phases of the National Contingency Plan. These steps range for preliminary data gathering, to site inspections, to large field investigations.
