Military Munitions Support Services - Life of a CSM: Concept to Response Complete

Sponsored by: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The Conceptual Site Model (CSM) serves as a planning instrument, a modeling and data interpretation aid, and a tool for the project delivery team (PDT) to communicate and describe the current state of knowledge and assumptions about potential munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) and MC risks at the site; actual, potentially complete, or incomplete exposure pathways; current and reasonable proposed use of property; and potential receptors. In three MMRP CSM project studies, we will explore how the CSM evolved as work progressed and data gaps were filled, and address lessons learned. The project studies will convey the importance of the systematic planning process, that ensured the CSM development and refinement through a collaborative effort between the PDT, regulators and major stakeholders.
