Groundwater Technical Support Center FY16 Annual Report
The Groundwater Technical Support Center (GWTSC) is part of the Groundwater, Watershed, and Ecosystem Restoration Division (GWERD), which is based in the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Center in Ada, Oklahoma. The GWERD is a research division of EPA’s National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL). The GWTSC is one of an interlinked group of specialized Technical Support Centers that were established under the Technical Support Project (TSP). The GWTSC provides technical support on issues related to groundwater. Specifi cally, the GWTSC provides technical support to EPA and State regulators for issues and problems related to: 1. Subsurface contamination (contaminants in groundwater, soils and sediments). 2. Cross-media transfer (movement of contaminants from the subsurface to other media such as surface water or air). 3. Restoration of impacted ecosystems. The GWTSC works with Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) and other decision makers to solve specifi c problems at Superfund, RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act), Brownfi elds sites, and ecosystem restoration sites.
