Meeting Objectives:

  1. Discuss the importance of developing robust CSMs with site-specific data (i.e., past, present and future) to support remedial technology selection and proper application.
  2. Discuss the use of performance monitoring to test, update and confirm CSMs to ensure remediation effectiveness.
  3. Review case studies where CSMs have evolved to address and resolve remedial technology limitations and to demonstrate remedial successes.
  4. Discuss the relationship between CSM characterization and contaminant monitoring and modeling at various temporal and spatial scales to support remedial decision making.
