Short description: This technical guide describes the use of “smart scoping” practices during any phase of a Superfund remedial investigation’s project life cycle or in accordance with other similar federal, state or tribal regulatory authorities. Use of these practices can support the development of a robust conceptual site model (CSM), which, in turn, helps improve response action development, selection and implementation. Smart scoping integrates adaptive management and site characterization. Adaptive management is an approach the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expanding to help ensure informed decision-making and the expenditure of limited resources go hand-in-hand throughout the remedial process.
