Abstract
The guidance document focuses on key issues in the development, evaluation, and selection of ground water remedial actions at Superfund sites. Statutory mandates require that remedies be protective and utilize permanent solutions and treatment technologies to the maximum extent practicable. Consistent with these mandates, the goal of Superfund ground water actions is to restore ground water to its beneficial uses within a reasonable time frame, given the particular site circumstances. The document presents the analytical framework and statutory basis for formulating ground water alternatives, outlines factors that should be examined to evaluate and compare ground water alternatives, highlights key considerations for selecting a ground water remedy, and illustrates with a case study the remedial investigation and feasibility study process for ground water. Although each Superfund site presents unique environmental conditions and human health problems, a consistent approach should be used when collecting and analyzing data and developing and evaluating ground water remedial alternatives.
