WORKSHOP PLATFORM PRESENTER - ITRC WORKSHOP: Remediation Management of Complex Sites
The proper identification and management of complex sites has long vexed industry and many oversight agencies. Complex sites unique attributes often require substantial human and financial resources to address. Conceptual site models that fail to recognize key complexity attributes can result in site objectives that cannot be achieved in a reasonable timeframe. ITRC's draft Remediation Management of Complex Sites guidance provides insights and recommendations to identify a complex site and develop site objectives that will be both protective and achievable.
