Short description: The Unified Guidance provides a suggested framework and recommendations for the statistical analysis of groundwater monitoring data at Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) facility units subject to 40 CFR Parts 264 and 265 and 40 CFR Part 258, to determine whether groundwater has been impacted by a hazardous constituent release. Specific statistical methods are identified in the RCRA regulations, but their application is not described in any detail. The Unified Guidance provides examples and background information that will aid in successfully conducting the required statistical analyses. The Unified Guidance draws upon the experience gained in the last decade in implementing the RCRA Subtitle C and D groundwater monitoring programs and new research that has emerged since earlier Agency guidance. It updates and replaces the earlier 1989 Interim Final Guidance and the July 1992 Addendum
