Smart Scoping for Environmental Investigations Technical Guide Published 2018
EPA has issued three technical guides to assist environmental professionals in scoping, data management and strategic sampling activities at hazardous waste sites. EPA intends for the guides to strengthen Superfund site characterization activities to facilitate stronger site remedy decisions and improved remedy performance, among other objectives. This technical guide describes the use of "smart scoping" practices during any phase of a Superfund remedial investigation's project life cycle or in accordance with other similar federal, state or tribal regulatory authorities. Use of these practices can support the development of a robust conceptual site model (CSM), which, in turn, helps improve response action development, selection and implementation. Two additional companion technical guides should be used in conjunction with this smart scoping technical guide: Strategic Sampling Approaches and Best Practices for Data Management.

Note: The CLU-IN Publications and Studio area only contains publications that are a sole or key source of information on a particular hazardous waste management problem. You may also visit the CLU-IN site-wide search engine to locate additional publications available through other areas of CLU-IN.
