Systematically conducted, well-documented treatability studies are an important component of the remedial investigation/feasibility study (RI/FS) process and the remedial design/remedial action (RD/RA) process under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). The studies provide valuable site-specific data necessary to aid in the selection and implementation of the remedy. The manual focuses on soil washing treatability studies conducted in support of remedy selection prior to developing the Record of Decision. The manual presents guidance for designing and implementing a soil washing treatability study. The manual gives an overview of general information for determining whether soil washing technology may be effective guidance in designing and conducting soil washing treatability studies for remedy selection, assistance in interpreting data obtained from remedy selection treatability studies, and guidance to estimate costs associated with remedy design and full-scale soil washing remedial action. The manual is not intended to serve as a substitute for communication with reports or regulators nor as the sole basis for the selection of soil washing as a particular remediation technology. Soil washing must be used in conjunction with other treatment technologies since it generates residuals. The manual is designed to be used in conjunction with the Guide for Conducting Treatability Studies Under CERCLA; Interim Final.
