Technical Support Project for Cleaning Up Contaminated Sites - Ground Water Forum
The Ground Water Forum is a group of ground water scientists that support the Superfund and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) programs in each of the 10 EPA regional offices. The group was organized to exchange up-to-date information related to ground-water remediation issues at superfund and RCRA sites. Additional participants come from the EPA Laboratory System and EPA headquarters. The forum promotes communication between the regions and the laboratories and has three primary purposes:
- to bring the current state-of-the-science to each regional office as it is developed through the research efforts at the labs,
- to focus laboratory resources on research areas important to the ground-water scientists working in each EPA region,
- to maintain consistency in the interpretation of guidance and application of policy throughout the country.
