Work To Be Performed Site Characterization – Consistent with Conceptual Site Model – Consider lines of evidence – Complete and accurate delineation of the nature and extent of contamination Onsite and offsite – DEQ recognizes the challenges of offsite characterization and determining resulting risk – A complete and well prepared & presented SCR significantly helps us during review You know the site well, we don’t Detailed and up to date plans, maps, and drawings can present a lot of information quickly – Helps us better understand a site about which we know little – Helps reduce questions resulting in much less extensive comment letters » Shortens the overall time, which we all want – We use the checklist as a tool
Work to be Performed Complete figures are very helpful Illustrates the story include scale, complete legend, legible text and markings Accurately dated figures with sample dates
