1 This fact sheet summarizes key aspects of effective systems based on lessons learned from conducting optimization evaluations at 20 Superfund-financed P&T systems. The lessons learned, however, are relevant to almost any P&T system. Therefore, the document may serve as a resource for managers, or not that system is within the Superfund Program. This fact sheet is meant to provide a framework for effective site management, but is not intended to be a detailed instructional manual. A. INTRODUCTION ......... water extraction, above-ground treatment, disposal of the treated water, ground water monitoring in the subsurface, and process monitoring in the treatment primary activities: Setting system goals 1 and exit strategy - Are the system goals clearly stated with estimated time frames for achievement? Are the goals and time frames still appropriate? Are there measurable performance standards (i.e., metrics) for evaluating system performance? Is it clear what is required for some or Evaluating performance/effectiveness - Do data indicate that the P&T system is achieving the stated TABLE OF CONTENTS A.

Continuous improvement can occur if the above items are routinely addressed and if modifications to improve the system are subsequently implemented.
