Course Description:

This course presents proven methods to consistently integrate streamlining principles* into the remedial design and implementation (RDI), and closeout phases of environmental restoration projects under both the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). The principles identify ways to streamline RDI processes by focusing on problem identification, clearly articulating the remedial objectives, the means for achieving those objectives, uncertainty management, and developing exit strategies for all phases of the RDI project. Students will be given the opportunity to review existing decision documents to identify both flexibilities and allowances that can provide opportunities to streamline the overall RDI process. Through real site examples, participants will apply the streamlining principles and tools presented.

Topics covered include:

-          -          Overview/review of the four streamlining and their applicability to RDI;

-          -          Developing an effective core team;

-          -          Identifying potential problems during RDI;

-          -          Managing uncertainty;

-          -          Effective procurement strategies;

-          -          Early action and phased response actions and integration with other programs (i.e.,Decommissioning);

-          -          Streamlining reporting requirements and documentation;

-          -          Construction risk;

-          -          Health and safety considerations;

-          -          Contingency threshold monitoring;

-          -          Post-closure monitoring;

-          -          Close-out reports; and

-          -          - Site-specific issue resolution.


Use of these streamlining "principles" in the decision-making processes are also taught in the NETO courses on Principles of Environmental Restoration, and Principles for Accelerating Facility Disposition.
