Abstract

A method proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency to optimize site remediation, called the CRG approach states that soil cleanup levels are typically misapplied on a point by point basis rather than on average. The effectiveness of the CRG approach will be evaluated for lognormal, exponential, uniform, and normally distributed data by first simulating data sets for each distribution. Next the CRG approach will be applied to the simulated data sets. Finally, the results of the CRG approach will be analyzed.
