    WK66522

    1. Scope

    Oil and chemical release sites will require increasing attention to climate. All stages of planning and implementation should address impacts that may affect remedy protectiveness. This includes site assessment, feasibility studies, remedial design, and implementation.


    Keywords

    Site cleanup; Superfund; conceptual site models; corrective action; risk management; flooding; fires; wind; storms; hurricanes; hazardous waste sites.

    Rationale

    Techniques are needed to ensure that site clean up remedies can withstand extremes of weather and climate such as flooding, sea level rise, fire and storms. Users are state federal and municipal agencies; environmental consultants; and the interested public.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
