Superfund Remedy Decisions
The Superfund decision-making process for site remediation involves a number of considerations that are categorized below. These topics link to key Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) and Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office (FFRRO) guidance and other related documents frequently used by Superfund Remedial Project Managers when addressing and selecting remedial solutions at contaminated sites, both private and Federal Facility. These documents may also provide useful information for sites cleaned up under other authorities such as the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.

Disclosure Statement: OSRTI has attempted to provide the best available copies of documents. Some older documents may appear to be in poor condition. In addition, some of the older documents are available only as PDF Images and are not in a text-searchable format. However, the majority of documents have been converted to an electronic format with text-searching capabilities. These documents have been designated PDF Searchable.
During the conversion process, segments of a document may have been re-typed. Inadvertent errors may be present as a result. We recommend that numerical contaminant data be cross-checked against the PDF Image or an original paper copy before the data is used.
