Triad and the Hazardous Waste Site Cleanup Process

The Triad intersects the hazardous waste site cleanup process at a number of points, and has application for all steps of the process.

This section identifies the Triad's relationship to the hazardous waste site cleanup process. The focus is on the four major domains for hazardous waste site characterization and remediation activities, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) corrective actions, Voluntary Cleanup Programs (VCUPs), and property transactions. However, the discussion equally pertains to activities conducted under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) or other state or federal cleanup programs.

The connection between the Triad and RCRA/CERCLA cleanup stages is the need to manage decision uncertainty through information gathering.
The Triad approach brings benefits to site characterization and remediation work throughout the hazardous waste site cleanup process, and for all forms of existing cleanup programs.
