The ECO Update is a Bulletin series on ecological risk assessment of Superfund sites. These Bulletins serve as supplements to Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund, Volume II: Environmental Evaluation Manual (EPA/540-1-89/001). The information presented is intended to provide technical information to EPA and other government employees. It does not constitute rulemaking by the Agency, and may not be relied on to create a substantive or procedural right enforceable by any other person. The ecological risk assessments of Superfund sites evaluate the actual or potential effects of site contaminants on plants and animals and assess the need for remediation, including considering remedial alternatives and evaluating ecological effects of remediation. The ecological risk assessment of a Superfund site nearly always requires some type of field study. At a minimum, some field study is necessary in order to identify organisms and habitats that may be at risk.
