Suspected polluted site what do they do with it
Suspected polluted site—What do they do with it?

Investigation:

What pollutants are on-site? Where are they? Are they moving?

What is the risk?

Should we worry? How much?

Risk Assessment

R=E x T

Site Investigation


Where is esoi in cleanup process

Goal: Protect Human Health, Protect Bugs and Bunnies

Site Clean Up/Remediation


Esoi status good news bad news
ESOI Status: Good news/bad news

  • Bad news: Still in investigation stage (with some idea of risk)

  • Good news: We have plenty of data to answer basic questions (but not all we need)

    • Where are pollutants?

    • What are those pollutants?

    • Is it moving?

  • Good news: You can still participate meaningfully in process—watchdog process
