    The EPA Superfund remedial program has two risk assessment tools that are particularly relevant to decommissioning activities conducted under CERCLA authority. The Preliminary Remediation Goals for Radionuclides in Buildings (BPRG) electronic calculator was developed to help standardize the evaluation and cleanup of radiologically contaminated Cited by: 2. As a Project Manager my duties included performing Preliminary Assessments, Pre-screening Assessments, Site Reassessments, and onsite facility inspections .

    Several federal environmental laws passed since have increased the liability of property owners for the cost of cleanup on their properties. Property owners have used environmental site assessments as a way of minimizing liability. However, until recently there were no standards to guide professionals in performing these by: 2.

      For example, under the current federal model remedial design/remedial action (RD/RA) judicial consent decrees with potentially responsible parties (“PRPs”) under sections , and of CERCLA, PRPs have both covenanted not to sue the United States and agreed to indemnify the same for “claims on account of construction delays. The strict liability scheme under CERCLA names four classes of PRPs that are generally liable for “response costs” (i.e., investigation and cleanup costs) and NRD: the current owner or operator of a facility; the owner or operator of a facility at the time of the disposal of any hazardous substance;.

Preliminary Assessment/Site Inspection (PA/SI) The PA and SI are used by EPA to evaluate the potential for a release of hazardous substances from a site.

The National Contingency Plan (NCP) is USEPA’s road map for Superfund. Its intent is to ensure high-quality, consistent studies and remedies throughout the USA. In addition to defining rules for studies, the NCP allows for two types of cleanups: removal actions (faster, shorter, simpler parts of the total remedy) and remedial actions (the Author: Neil Shifrin.

As with the general strengths, the general weaknesses of risk-based methodologies are also less apparent in the CERCLA process.

The EPA prefers remedial options that treat sources of contamination, so all weaknesses related to leaving contamination in place are somewhat lessened.

EPA may agree to amend existing Cooperative Agreements or Superfund State Contracts to make the final regulation requirements applicable to work.EPA risk-assessment concepts, principles, and practices are products of many diverse factors, and each agency program is based on a “unique mixture of statutes, precedents, and stakeholders” (EPA a, p.
