This Guidance describes a presumptive response strategy for Superfund and other sites with contaminated ground water. This strategy integrates site response activities, facilitates selection of both short and long-term remediation objectives during remedy selection and allows the effectiveness of the remedy to be improved during implementation. The guidance also identifies presumptive technologies for treatment of extracted ground water, which will simplify and streamline the selection of this remedy component and shift the focus of the remedy selection process to other, more fundamental aspects of the ground-water remedy.
