QUALITY CONSIDERATIONS FOR MULTIPLE ASPECTS OF MUNITIONS RESPONSE SITES
Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC), Web-based document QCMR-1, 2018

The decision logic used throughout a munitions response (MR) project is explained to assist in developing the QA/QC activities that ensure quality data and confidence in decision-making. An overview of the MR process identifies specific quality considerations at critical decision points for MR projects. Planning for each decision point requires the assignment of specific quality metrics such that ongoing monitoring confirms project objectives are met. This document is specifically targeted toward federal, state, and local environmental regulators; MR managers, technical staff, and contractors; federal land management agencies; and tribal, environmental, and community stakeholders. Recent advances in MR technology are described, including advanced geophysical classification and corresponding developments in QA/QC procedures as well as requirements for qualifications and training. This document addresses only land-based MR and not the underwater environment. https://qcmr-1.itrcweb.org/
