E. Koglin and L. R. Williams, Trends in Analytical Chemistry, 13, 294-299 (1994). 1 A. Robbat, Jr., Tufts University, Case Study: Dynamic Workplans and Field Analytics: 2 The Keys to Cost-effective Site Investigations, 1997. 1 1.0 Introduction The ability to rapidly assess the disposition of environmental contaminants at purported or existing hazardous waste sites is an essential component of the nation’s environmental restoration program. Each site, whether owned by the public or private sector, must be evaluated to determine whether risk to human health or the environment exists. If the data obtained supports the notion that no risk or an acceptable level of risk exists for the intended land usage then no further action may be required. If, on the other hand, sufficient risk has been determined to warrant a full site characterization, the site investigation effort must delineate the nature, extent, direction, concentration and rate of movement of the contamination along with the physical and chemical site attributes.
