The use of innovative technologies and approaches to streamline site investigations and cleanup of hazardous waste sites is continuing to expand, providing opportunities for better, more cost-effective solutions to environmental problems compared to traditional approaches. One such approach is the Triad--an innovative approach that uses systematic project planning, dynamic work strategies, and real-time measurement technologies to reduce uncertainty and improve decision-making while reducing overall project costs and timeframes. The overarching goal of the Triad approach is to actively manage decision uncertainty. The confidence and effectiveness of project decision-making are improved by: (1) Identifying and managing decision uncertainties (those unknowns that stand in the way of making confident decisions) and data uncertainties (sources of variation in data when decisions are based on data), and (2) Incorporating advanced science and technologies to support better, faster, and cheaper projects.
