This report discusses a wide range of innovative diagnostic tools for characterization and remedial performance assessment at chlorinated solvent-contaminated sites, including tools for multi-level monitoring, rock matrix characterization, mass flux measurement, and compound-specific isotope analysis, as well as molecular biological tools. The uncertainty faced by practitioners while making decisions regarding remediation at such sites is a significant challenge, as is the decision of whether to expend additional resources to use one or more new diagnostic tools to decrease that uncertainty. This project was an effort to test certain tools and then develop qualitative guidelines regarding the value of information provided by the tools. http://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/13275/155946/file/ER-200318-
