This Directive recommends that EPA remediation programs be familiar with Comprehensive State Ground Water Protection Programs (CSGWPPs) and utilize them as a means of giving more flexibility to a State for management of ground-water resources. It also establishes the policy that EPA remediation programs generally should: 1) defer to State determinations of current and future ground-water uses, when based on an EPA-endorsed CSGWPP that has provisions for site-specific decisions; and 2) participate in EPA's review and endorsement of CSGWPPs.
