Preliminary Assessment

The Preliminary Assessment (PA) is a limited-scope assessment designed to distinguish between sites that clearly pose little or no threat to human health or the environment and sites that may pose a threat and require further investigation. Environmental samples are rarely collected during a PA.

A preliminary score for the site can be developed using HRS Quickscore and PA data to determine if a site inspection (SI) is necessary and to assist in designing the SI. HRS Quickscore is an electronic set of HRS score sheets that executes real time, site score calculations.
