Qualitative Screening by Long Term Reliability

Each management alternative shall be assessed (qualitatively) for its long-term reliability, by considering the following criteria, as appropriate:

  • Reliability of treatment technologies in meeting treatment objectives and their ability to continue to prevent exposure to the contaminated media;
  • Reliability of engineering and institutional controls, taking into consideration the characteristics of the hazardous substances to be managed;
  • The effectiveness and enforceability over time of engineering and institutional controls in preventing migration of contaminants and in managing risks associated with potential exposure;
  • Uncertainties of any necessary long-term management and degree of management (e.g., operation, maintenance, and monitoring); and
  • Any other information relevant to long-term reliability.
