                   1999NARPM Conference Pro<
The National Association of Remedial Project Managers (NARPM) held its annual conference
this year at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois from August 2 to August 6,1999. This year's
conference was the largest thus far with over 230 participants. RPMs from all ten Regions and
over 22 States participated this year.

This year's NARPM conference included a wide variety of activities field trips to local
Superfund sites and Brownfields sites, an opening plenary session, training courses, panel
sessions and presentations.

The conference opened on August 3 with remarks by Bill Muno, Director of the Superfund
Division in Region 5 and Larry Reed, Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. This was
follow by a presentation from Michael Salmon, Senior Vice President of TRC Companies, Inc.
on "Evaluating and Choosing Redevelopment and Beneficial Reuse Options at Superfund Sites."

Based on the positive response to the training classes offered at the 1998 conference, 11 different
training courses were offered on Tuesday and Wednesday. Classes covered a wide range of
topics including Cost Estimating, Media, Public Speaking, Redevelopment and Reuse, Oversight
of RD/RAs, Natural Attenuation, Leadership, Institutional Controls, Operations & Maintenance,
Removals, and Site Characterization.

On Thursday and Friday, 20 Panel and Presentation Sessions were offered. Many of the topics
overlapped with training topics and provided an opportunity for RPMs to share experiences and
information.  Some of the topics covered included Sediments and Urban Rivers, Community
Involvement, ROD Quality, Post Construction Issues, Enforcement Flexibilities and Strategies,
Psychosocial Stress in Communities, and the Superfund Job Training Initiative.

Finally, NARPM thanks our Chicago RPMs for then- excellent job in hosting the conference.
They arranged for field trips and after hours social activities that we enjoyed. We would also like
to give a special thanks to Gary Turner and the folks at Tetra Tech for their assistance in
developing the training classes and taking care of all the conference logistics.
                                 Sincerely,
                                 the NARPM National Co-Chairs:

In addition to rating the sessions they attended, participants were asked to provide suggestions for panel
and presentation sessions for the NARPM meeting in 2000. Following are their suggestions:
     ATSDR as a resource
     Brownfields
     Building relationships between federal and state RPMs
     Dealing with hostile communities
     Dioxin
     Ecological risk sites
     Environmental justice
     Experienced RPMs coaching new RPMs
     Five-year reviews
     Incorporating elements of the remedial design into a site
     redevelopment design
Innovative treatment technologies
Institutional controls
Internet technologies
NRO projects and how they can be coordinated with
NPL work
Panel sessions that provide fewer details about sites, with
more time spent on addressing issues
Remediation technologies for sediments
Sampling strategies
Site assessment
Update from the panel session on lead sites
At the end of the overall meeting evaluation form, participants were asked to provide recommendations

for improvement of the meeting in 2000. Following are recommendations related to panel and

presentation sessions that participants provided.


                Some panelists spoke about topics other than the subject of the session, and several panel
                sessions were disorganized. The moderators should coordinate the panelists'
                presentations beforehand to ensure the quality of the sessions.

                Representatives of management should participate as panelists.

        *        Panelists should provide handouts, such as outlines or slides, for the participants.

        *        Panelists,  presenters, and training developers should  devote less time to background
                information, allowing more time for discussion of issues and their resolution.

                Moderators should schedule panel sessions and presentations to allow adequate time for
                question-and-answer periods.

                Meeting organizers should hold a conference call with all moderators well before the
                moderators begin to organize their sessions.  The conference call could serve as a
                training session to explain what is expected of a moderator.

                Meeting organizers should consider asking the moderators whether they would be
                willing to  follow up on activities that are undertaken as a result of their panel sessions
                and to establish at least one action item related to the  topic of their sessions.

                              Summary of Information Submitted
                                 on Training Evaluation Forms

During the 1999 meeting of the National Association of Remedial Project Managers (NARPM) 11
courses, for which participants had to pre-register, were offered on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday,
and panel and presentation sessions were offered on Thursday and Friday.  During the previous year's
meeting, training and panel sessions and presentations were offered on the same day. Participants
therefore found it necessary to choose whether they wanted to participate in a course or attend a panel
session or presentation. Participants commented favorably on the scheduling of the training course
selections on a different day from the panel sessions and presentations. In addition, many participants
commented that the training time allotted for all the courses was insufficient.

The courses offered during the NARPM meeting included courses that had been developed previously
and new courses developed specifically for the meeting. The following previously existing courses
underwent only minor modification before they were presented during the meeting: the Media Workshop;
the Natural Attenuation of Chlorinated Solvents in Groundwater Workshop; the Field-Based Site
Characterization Technologies Short Course; and the Leadership: Attitude, Function, and Style
Workshop. The remaining offerings were new courses developed especially for the meeting or existing
courses that had undergone extensive revision: the Cost Estimating and Independent Government Cost
Estimate (IGCE) Workshop; the Public Speaking Workshop; the Redevelopment and Reuse Workshop;
the Vigilance of Remedy Construction - Oversight of Potentially Responsible Party (PRP)-Lead
Remedial Design and Remedial Actions (RD/RA) Workshop; the Planning and Implementing Operation
& Maintenance (O&M) Workshop; the Running with the Land -  Institutional Controls in Superfund
Workshop; and the Removal Process for RPMs Course.

In the tables below, summaries of comments submitted on the course evaluation forms are presented by
the name of the course, in alphabetical order. On the evaluation forms, participants were asked to grade
the courses they attended. Tetra Tech reviewed written comments participants provided and focused the
                                                                     
summaries presented below on common themes that appeared among them. The comments are not
presented verbatim. Following the summaries is a list of training needs identified by participants.
Copies of the evaluation forms are provided in a special supplement to this report.

in the course.
One participant remarked that, although the instructors were
very knowledgeable, they should have been better prepared for
presentations; in addition, the participant noted Jhat the
presentations were focused on legal,  rather than technical,
issues.

                      Summaries of Opening and Closing Plenary Sessions
                             and Panel and Presentation Sessions
During the 1999 meeting of the National Association of Remedial Project Managers (NARPM), a

facilitator from Tetra Tech EM Inc. (Tetra Tech) was assigned to each plenary, panel, and presentation

session. Presented below is a summary of the opening plenary session, followed by summaries of the

panel sessions and presentations in alphabetical order. A summary of the closing plenary session appears
at the end of this attachment.


Opening Plenary Session - Tuesday, August 3,1999

Ms. Eva Hoffman of EPA Region 8, who is President of the NARPM, welcomed the participants to the

conference. She then provided a progress report on the activities and accomplishments of the NARPM

since its conference in New York City in 1998. Listed below are the issues addressed and activities

conducted by the NARPM during the past year:
    -  Scheduled training and panel sessions at different times during the NARPM conference
    -  Doubled the number of state personnel invited to the NARPM conference
    -  Met with on-scene coordinators (OSC)
    -  Met with Superfund branch chiefs
    -  Discussed the issue of National Priorities List (NPL) sites and sites that are not on the NPL
      (Congress does not take into consideration work on non-NPL sites)
    -  Discussed the possibility that remedial project managers (RPM) can assist the Resource
      Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) program with listing RCRA sites on the NPL
    -  Discussed upgrades of RPMs to the GS-14 grade
    -  Prepared and distributed the NARPM newsletter
    -  Examined issues related to sediment sites and the drain on resources those sites create
    -  Developed the NARPM World Wide Web (WWW) site
    -  Established a reauthorization panel
    -  Established an engineering forum
    -  Continued to work on the National Remedy Review Board (NRRB)
    -  Conducted NARPM elections
Ms. Hoffman then thanked Mr. Richard Jeng of EPA's Office of Emergency and Remedial Response

(OERR) and Mr. Gary Turner of EPA's Technology Innovation Office (TIO) for their technical and

financial support for the NARPM conference, the many RPMs who assisted in the development of

courses, and the staff of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 who arranged the field

trips and after-conference activities. Ms. Hoffman then introduced Mr. Bill Muno, director of Region 5's

Superfund Division.
                                            5-1

-------
 Mr. Muno first offered regrets from Mr. Frank Lyons, Regional Administrator of Region 5, who had been
 unable to attend the conference.  Stressing that the RPM is "in charge" of a Superfund site, Mr. Muno
 urged RPMs to focus on three important issues: (1) construction completions, (2) administrative reforms,
 and (3) Brownfields. He thanked the RPMs for their hard work and expressed his hope that they would
 enjoy their visit to Chicago.

 Ms. Hoffman then introduced Mr. Larry Reed of EPA's Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response
 (OSWER), who spoke for Mr. Timothy Fields of that office. Mr. Reed announced that Mr. Fields had
 been confirmed by the Senate as Assistant Administrator of OSWER, noting that Mr. Fields is the first
 person in that position to have '"worked his way up through the ranks." Mr. Reed then explained that the
 need to address issues related to reauthorization of Superfund had made it necessary that Mr. Fields
 remain in Washington, D.C., preventing him from attending the conference. After commenting on the
 high quality of the conference agenda, Mr. Reed stated that the training courses, panel sessions, and
 presentations were addressing important issues at the  forefront of the Superfund program, such as
 independent government cost estimates, records of decision (ROD), and reuse and redevelopment.  He
 then thanked the NARPM co-chairs for their hard work. Mr. Reed then reviewed the status of the
 Superfund program. He said that the program is operating successfully and that the three rounds of
 administrative reforms have had a positive effect on it. The significant change in public perception of the
 program, from negative  to positive, had been accomplished by implementation of the administrative
 reforms, he continued, and by demonstration of progress through the achievement of construction
completion milestones.  Mr. Reed pointed out that 80  to 85 construction completions will be
accomplished in fiscal year (FY) 1999, with a total of 650 by the fall of 1999. Both those
accomplishments are paying major dividends for reauthorization, he added, because they strengthen the
case against negative legislation. Legislation currently before the Congress, he said, includes only minor
changes in liability provisions, with no sweeping reforms in the program. Funding for EPA, he added,
was not cut severely under the 2000 appropriations bill.

Mr. Reed identified the following priorities and initiatives for FY 2000:
    1. Construction completions
    2. Enforcement first
    3. Administrative reforms, such as remedy updates; NRRB; quality of RODs; and implementation of
      new risk assessment guidance related to community involvement, ecological risk assessments, soil
      screening, probabilistic methods, and tribal risk assessments
    4. Improvements in analytical services and use of field methods
                                             5-2

-------
Mr. Reed also identified the following new areas of emphasis:
    1.  Post-construction activities, including the backlog of five-year reviews and optimization of
       operations and maintenance
    2.  Redevelopment of Superfund sites and the need to work with the local community early in the
       redevelopment process
In the future, Mr. Reed continued, the efforts of the Superfund program will focus on the following areas:
    1. EPA's commitment to the listing of new sites on the NPL
    2. Complex and orphan sites
    3. Community involvement activities, including working with stakeholders, communicating
      effectively, providing community involvement training for RPMs, and involving the Agency for
      Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), as well  as the services of the ombudsman, the
      Superfund job training initiative, and technical assistance grants
Ms. Hoffman then introduced Mr. Michael Salmon of TRC Companies, Inc. (TRC), who spoke about the
redevelopment and reuse of Superfund sites.  TRC is involved in cleanups at sites at which there is
potential for redevelopment, Mr. Salmon said. He explained that funding is the most significant factor
affecting the redevelopment of Superfund sites. There are, he said, three options available:
redevelopment, either in response to the market or sponsored by government; beneficial reuse; and no
reuse. Mr. Salmon pointed out that, at the majority of Superfund sites, there is no reuse. He then
presented a selection methodology for determining the type of redevelopment for which a site may be
suited. He provided several examples of various types of arrangements for redevelopment.  Mr. Salmon
then discussed the factors that make redevelopment successful and the obstacles to redevelopment, listing
factors and obstacles that affect potentially responsible parties (PRP), regulatory agencies, communities,
and developers. He stated that existing regulations and guidance are sufficient to support the
implementation of redevelopment options at Superfund sites; no new regulations or guidance is needed,
he stressed.

Ms. Hoffman then introduced the officers and regional representatives of the NARPM. Mr. Jeng and Mr.
Turner then provided logistical information about the NARPM conference, and the staff of Region 5
made announcements about organized evening activities.
                                             5-3

 Community Involvement Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
 Mr. Derek Matory of EPA Region 4 moderated the panel session. Ms. Kathy Setian of EPA Region 9
 provided a brief presentation on the Big Trees Park at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. EPA
 and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), she said, had encountered issues related to community
 involvement near the park, where plutonium is present at high levels. To obtain approval of its work
 plan, DOE had been required by the EPA RPM to conduct community involvement activities, she
 reported. Ms. Nancy Riveland of EPA Region 9 then spoke about the Quality Business Circuits site,
 which is not included on the NPL. The community and state, she said, were "at odds" about activities at
 the site.  The community had received an environmental justice grant that supported development of a
 newsletter through which issues were presented. The grant and the newsletter, said Ms. Riveland, helped
 to build trust between the community and EPA. Mr. Fonda Apostoiopoulous of the State of Colorado
 then spoke about the Asarco Globe site, which was the subject of a lawsuit charging damage to natural
 resources. The results of the health testing in the community were stolen, he reported, and attorneys
 involved "upstaged state representatives during public meetings." The state RPM spoke to many citizens
 one-on-one and went to meetings of the community's civic association to help build trust between the
 community and the state, said Mr. Apostoiopoulous.

 Ms. Jan Shubert of the EPA OERR then provided to participants in the session a community advisory
 tool kit that reminds RPMs to take the following actions to better involve communities at their sites:
 build relationships, be proactive, plan ahead, cooperate and collaborate, communicate clearly, and be
 creative.

Dealing with Stress Workshop - Thursday, August 5,1999
 Mr. Bob Lim of EPA Region 1 moderated the workshop. Panelists included Mr. Dion Novak of EPA
 Region 5, Mr. Dante Rodriguez of EPA Region 9, Ms. Melissa'Taylor of EPA Region  1, and Ms. Monica
 Matzke of EPA Region 2. Mr. Bill Hagel of Tetra Tech assisted the panelists as a facilitator. The panel
 session examined three separate sources of stress that RPMs encounter in their jobs: decision making,
 communication, and balancing of work and life.  The panelists used humor to highlight various aspects of
 stress in the three categories and compiled a list of stress-relieving techniques recommended by panelists
 and members of the audience.  Stressful activities and recommendations for relieving the stress they
produced were recorded on a flip chart paper and are presented verbatim below.
                                             5-4

Source of Stress
Decision making













Communication











Suggestions for Reducing Stress
Check facts and assumptions
Delegate
Don't react immediately
Look for support
Trust yourself
Prioritize your decision making
Organize your work area
Don't think you must make all decisions
Hire more RPMs
Alternate seating arrangements
Some people thrive on stress
Communicate frequently to supervisors

Make a decision; if it is wrong, make an immediate correction
For people who don't listen, ask them questions to clarify their
position; sometimes they will hear your message
For talkative office people, make it hard for them to stop and stay in
your office space (e.g., pile material on guest chairs; use earplugs; use
headsets)
For talkative office people, be honest and tell them "you're busy"
For community members who have a different agenda, change rules of
conducting public meetings (i.e., specify set amount of time for
commenting)
Know your facts
For voicemail and e-mail, go into hermit mode; get out of your office
(i.e., work in empty conference rooms); don't answer phone; return
calls during a set period of time
For e-mails, create folders by subject matter for later reading instead of
reading a variety of messages
For e-mails, act immediately instead of postponing
Think of best way to communicate, given the message (i.e., voice, e-
mail, memo, etc.)
Spell- and grammar-check e-mail so people understand you the first
time
At public meetings, don't take comments personally
At public meetings, dress appropriately (nonverbal communication)

Source of Stress
Balancing of work and life
Suggestions for Redwing Stress
Exercise
Know thyself
Learn to say no
Get away from work friends once in awhile
Find out where your worktime inefficiencies are
Hire more RPMs
Seek senior RPMs for their advice rather than remain stuck on a
problem
Action item: Review regional Compensatory Time policies and
balance, if possible, so RPMs can be compensated for work completed
beyond 40 hours per week
Don't be fearful that you won't get your job done
For measuring success, find alternative methods of recognition (i.e.,
amount of cost recovered; etc.)
Acknowledge that RPM'ing is not as stressful as an air traffic
controller or ER doctor
Remember why you work at EPA (mission is protecting public health
and environment)
Lighten up; use humor
Don't bring work home or home to work
Help others reduce their stress, thereby reducing your stress, since you
have to work with them
Talk to your supervisor about your personal situation so that they will
understand if you are not performing as expected
Ecological Risk and Reclamation Presentations - Tuesday, August 3,1999
During the first presentation on ecological risk assessment, Mr. Wayne Praskins of EPA Region 9
reviewed the ecological risk assessment process conducted for the Carson River Site in Nevada. Gold
and silver mining operations at the site resulted in the discharge of 10 million pounds of mill tailings
contaminated with mercury. Mercury is present in fish and birds in the area. A screening-level risk
assessment identified a risk to wildlife, and it was determined that a more extensive study would be
necessary. The more extensive study, which involved testing and observing several species of birds in
the area of the site and in a control area, did not conclude that mercury is presenting a risk to birds. That
study put the screening risk assessment into perspective and showed that mercury was not lethal to the
                                              5-6

-------
birds.  Additional studies are planned to determine whether mercury is presenting a problem for bird
populations.

During the second presentation on ecological reclamation of Lake Calumet Cluster, Ms. Rosita Clarke-
Moreno of EPA Region 5 described activities conducted at the Lake Calumet Cluster sites.  The sites are
included in the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Information
System (CERCLIS), but have not been scored high enough under the Hazard Ranking System (HRS) to
be proposed for inclusion on the NPL. Further, no PRPs have been identified. EPA is forming
partnerships with state and local agencies to devise creative ways to address the problems the sites pose.
The goals for the sites are to reclaim some of the area as an ecological resource and to clean up other
areas for industrial use. The Phase I study evaluated existing data and concluded that the goals, are
reasonable.  The Phase II study will address data gaps, assess removal and other cleanup options, assess
ecological risks, pilot test technologies, and seek alternative funding for future cleanup.

In the third presentation, which addressed in situ assessment of mercury contamination in the Sudbury
River in Massachusetts, Mr. Ken Finkelstein of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) described how the ecological effects of mercury contamination in the Sudbury River were
measured.  Mussels were collected from a clean lake in New England and were then put in the Sudbury
River at stations located near the source of mercury contamination and downstream of the source.
Mussels also were placed in reference areas unaffected by mercury contamination. The mussels were left
at the stations for 90 days.  The level of mercury  and the growth of the mussels were measured before
and after placement in the stations. The study showed that, in general, mussels placed near the site grew
less than those placed at a distance from the site.  Mercury in the mussels was attributed to mercury in
the water, rather than the sediments.  The study was not designed to assess all ecological risks.  It is being
used, along with other studies, to establish a weight of evidence with regard to the ecological risks the
site poses.
Enforcement Flexibilities and Strategies Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
Ms. Hoffman moderated the panel.  Ms. Nadia Ho Han of EPA Region 9 began the discussion by
describing one of her sites, the Motorola 52nd Street site.  She stated that the three most important
lessons learned through the work at this site were to involve the major PRPs; to secure the cooperation of
the state; and to "know the weaknesses of everyone involved, including yourself."  Ms. Annie Godfrey
of EPA Region 4 then discussed her site, noting that a team approach is used at the site. Ms. Godfrey
listed among the benefits of proper use of a team approach as better quality decisions, better quality of

                                              5-7

-------
 work, and lower transaction costs. Among the lessons learned, she continued, were: put money into
 technology and the community, do not overlook potential stakeholders, conduct face-to-face meetings
 with decision makers, maintain clear goals and incentives, be willing to make commitments, and trust
 each other. Ms. Godfrey then stated that the approach can be effective when certain circumstances
 prevail at the site of concern: a complex site, the presence of issues related to environmental justice, a
 willing PRP, and commitment on the part of the responsible agency. Ms. Hoffman then discussed one of
 her sites, Kennecott.  The PRP was borrowing a large sum of money, she said, and therefore did not want
 the site listed on the NPL. The PRP, she explained, feared that listing would drive the interest rate on the
 borrowed money higher. Ms. Hoffman stated that she used a memorandum of understanding to work
 with the PRP, noting that she was able to do so because there was corporate commitment, the  state and
 local government approved, the PRP is knowledgeable about Superrund, and the PRP is a subsidiary of a
 multinational mining company.  She cautioned, however, that not all PRPs are as cooperative  as
 Kennecott. Ms. Victoria Van Roden of the EPA Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance
 (OECA) then discussed the other side of the issue.  She pointed out that EPA would have funding at a
 steady pace until 2005; activity then will decrease to approximately 40 sites per year. Ms. Van Roden
 stated liiat a work group currently was addressing the future of Superrund; each region is represented on
 the work group, she added. She then stated that the work group had not yet reached consensus.

Federal Facilities Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Rob Stites of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel.  The members of the panel discussed institutional
controls, unexploded ordnance (UXO), and partial deletions from the NPL, with the audience electing to
discuss institutional controls first. Historically, institutional controls have not been set forth in specific
terms in RODs. There has often been uncertainty about how such controls are to be implemented and
who would be responsible for their implementation. Region 4, it was stated, has prepared a guidance
document on institutional controls that addresses quarterly monitoring of land use controls and requires
written concurrence in cases in which major changes are to be made in land use. The Army maintains
that institutional controls are not a remedy under the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA); the Army therefore declines to  include such controls in the
ROD. Under the National Contingency Plan, institutional controls are required in all situations except
unrestricted use.
Ms. Mary Cooke of EPA Region 3 then addressed the issue of UXO, noting that inconsistency in
approaches to UXO makes cleanup of such contamination difficult.  Ms. Cooke then called for a national
policy on UXO.
                                             5-8

-------
The members of the panel then reviewed the steps necessary to perform a partial deletion: 1) obtain the
concurrence of the state and the acceptance of the community, 2) review the guidance on partial
deletions, 3) collect data, 4) prepare the geographic information system (CIS) map, 5) draft the Notice of
Intention to Delete (MOID), 6) send the materials prepared in steps three to five to EPA headquarters, 7)
create a deletion docket, 8) prepare a draft fact sheet, 9) prepare the public notice and the press release
and revise the partial NOID, 10) obtain the written concurrence of the state, 11) obtain the concurrence
of the region through EPA, 12) submit the materials to EPA headquarters for publication in the Federal
Register, 13) conduct a 30-day public comment period, 14) draft the Notice of Deletion (NOD), 15)
complete the responsiveness summary, and 16) publish the NOD.

Ground-water Presentations - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Sean Hogan of EPA Region 9 made a presentation titled "The Perils of Estimating the Time Frame to
Achieve Aquifer Restoration Using Monitored Natural Attenuation  Lessons Learned at Williams Air
Force Base." Mr. Hogan explained that the Air Force had proposed to change the remedial action from
pumping and treating groundwater contaminated with trichloroethene to monitored natural attenuation
(MNA), but had not estimated a time frame for restoration under the MNA remedy. EPA used the
BIOSCREEN Model to estimate the time frame. The greatest difficulties encountered, Mr. Hogan stated,
were (1) obtaining an adequate conceptual site model, (2) estimating the volume of product in the
groundwater, (3) accounting for the rise in the water table over the past 10 years, and (4) coming to
agreement about the parameters to be used  in the BIOSCREEN model.

Mr. Michael Dybas of Michigan State University then made, a presentation titled "In-Situ Bioremediation
of Groundwater Contaminated With Carbon Tetrachloride." Mr. Dybas discussed the pilot-scale and
full-scale testing of in situ bioremediation of groundwater.  He provided information about the
development and laboratory testing of a microorganism that degrades carbon tetrachloride.  The field
testing involved the injection of the microorganism, substrate, and alkali into an existing groundwater
plume and measuring the rate and level of biodegradation that took place, he continued. In conclusion,
Mr. Dybas said that the full-scale testing had been successful and showed that microorganisms and
nutrients could be delivered to the groundwater.  Carbon tetrachloride had been biodegraded to levels
below the cleanup standard, he added.

Innovations in Site Analysis Panel Session - Friday, August 6,1999
Mr. Robert Hitzig of EPA OERR moderated the panel.  Presentations were made about innovations and
improvements in the analytical services that EPA offers to the Superfund program. The innovations
                                              5-9

-------
 improve retrieval, management, and validation of data and provide quicker turn-around times for
 analyses, he said, noting that site managers now have many more options for data analysis.  OSWER also
 is taking steps to help RPMs consider and use field methods of analysis, rather than laboratory analysis,
 said Mr. Hitzig. OSWER currently is drafting guidance on planning for and implementing field
 analytical methods in a dynamic work plan, he added.

 Case studies then were presented. The first case study illustrated how EPA's analytical services provided
 expedited data collection and analysis at a site that required a quick investigation and remedy decision.
 The second case study demonstrated the use of x-ray fluorescence (XRF) to investigate and characterize
 levels of lead at a very large site. The XRF data were used to reliably characterize levels of lead in
 residential yards and to confirm the achievement of the cleanup level.

 Lead Sites Work Group Activities Panel Session - Friday, August 6,1999
 Mr. Brad Bradley of EPA Region 5  moderated the panel.  Mr. Shahid Mahmud of EPA OERR began the
 discussion with an overview of the activities of the Lead Sites Work Group, noting as well that three key
 groups address issues related to lead sites: the Lead Sites Consultation Group, the Lead Sites Work
 Group, and the Technical Review Group. Mr. Mahmud then explained that the consultation group is
 made up of regional Superfund directors and senior managers of OERR and that the purpose of the group
 is to share and communicate key decisions at selected sites and provide peer advice on lead policy. The
 work group is made up of RPMs, staff of OERR, and lexicologists.  The purpose of that group, Mr.
 Mahmud continued, is to identify and resolve key risk management policy and implementation at lead
 sites.  The technical review group is made up of technical  staff from EPA, OERR, ORD, OPPT, and
NCEA.  That group's purpose, Mr. Mahmud went on, is to provide site-specific advice and develop
guidance on lead risk assessment. Mr. Mark Doolan of Region 7 then discussed the group's work on a
new guidance for addressing residential yards; it would be six months to a year before the new directive
would be available, he added.  Mr. Larry Zaragosa of EPA OERR discussed the lead Web site that is
available through EPA headquarters. Turning  his attention to the issue of bioavailability, Mr. Zaragosa
stated that Congress is devising a fact sheet on the issue. Many studies of the subject have been
conducted, he commented, adding that a number of vendors offer various methods of addressing the
issue.

Post-Construction Issues Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Dion Novak of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel. Mr. Eric Mines of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers (USAGE) began the panel session by discussing guidelines for conducting evaluations of
                                             5-10

-------
remediation systems and the five-year reviews required under CERCLA.  His discussion touched on
purpose, timing, fundamentals, costs, site visits, and goals. Mr. Mines informed the audience that
USAGE had developed check lists to assist in conducting reviews; the check lists are available on
USAGE'S Web site. He also announced that USAGE was to provide training in the use of the check lists;
the training was to take place in June, he added. Mr. Rafael Gonzalez of EPA OERR then discussed the
status of the various regions, pointing out that many NPL sites had been held up in post-construction.
Mr. Gonzalez added that the number of deletions in the near future is expected to be large. He told the
group that a work group had been formed to examine the deletion process; the group had developed a list
of recommendations for improving that process, he said.

Property Issues Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Jon Peterson of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel. Mr. Stephen Hess of EPA's Office of General
Counsel (OGC) discussed the recent guidance on relocations, which considers relocation a "last resort."
He stated that CERCLA section 104(j) gives EPA authority to buy property to perform a remedial action.
He added that EPA cannot buy property under a removal action and discussed the OSWER policy of
rebuilding homes, rather than relocating people. Mr. Hess then stated that the region makes the
determination whether relocation is necessary: if the cost involved is more than $25,000, the relocation
must be approved by EPA OSWER; if the cost is $25,000 or less, EPA OGC must approve the relocation.
Mr. Hess then offered to send an outline on relocation or purchase procedures to anyone who requested
the materials by electronic mail.

Mr. Steven Sandier of EPA Region 4 then gave a presentation on the Bluff Road site, a four-acre parcel
in South Carolina. Access to adjacent properties, Mr. Sandier explained, had been a problem for the
RPM at the site. Because local property owners were "well connected," he continued, the RPM
encountered great difficulty in obtaining access. Mr. Hess stated that EPA "got caught between the PRPs
and the site owners," who expected the PRPs to pay for access. In the end, he said, the PRPs paid
$600,000 for easements at the site. Mr. Ralph Howard of EPA Region 4 then described the easement
issues that affected a site in Greer, South Carolina.  Environmental justice issues had arisen at the site,
currently in the remedial action stage.  Mr. Howard noted that there is always a potential that community
issues or issues of environmental justice will delay  work at a site. He then discussed the steps taken to
obtain the easement at the site, noting that the process had taken approximately two years.
                                             5-11

-------
 Psychosocial Stress in Communities Panel Session - Friday, August 6,1999
 Ms. Jan Shubert of EPA OERR moderated the panel. Ms. Shubert began the discussion by making three
 points: (1) one-on-one interaction with community members is very important; (2) the RPM often does
 not live near the site, or even in the same state, so he or she may have no connection to the community;
 and (3) RPMs must be able to answer questions from the community honestly and directly in language
 members of the community understand.  In the next presentation, Ms. Pat Seppi of EPA Region 2
 explained .that EPA is charged with protecting human health and the environment, but also is beginning
 to consider the psychological "health" of the community.  Ms. Seppi described the Claremount
 Development site.  There, she said, in a small community in which all the citizens knew each other, the
 RPM found it necessary to determine whether all the stress was related to the site. She pointed out that
 EPA must maintain objectivity, while working with a community in a personable way. EPA can offer
 meeting facilitators who can assist with anger management and redirect anger in a positive way. She
 pointed out further that RPMs must learn to "separate themselves," refraining from taking the
 community's reaction personally. It is important, Ms. Seppi continued, that the RPM be careful not to
 feed fears with incorrect or misleading information and to distribute as much information as possible
 before public meetings. Doing so helps to build credibility and stop the flow of misinformation, she
 pointed out. RPMs attending the session stated their opinion that there are not enough community
 involvement personnel in EPA to assist them. They also explained that RPMs must acknowledge the
 history of the site and the anger of the community before the next steps can be taken.
                                         *

Remedial Action Case Studies and Cost Recovery Presentations - Thursday, August 5,1999
 Mr. Femi Akindele of EPA Region 4  and Mr. Ed Bates of EPA made the first presentation, "Remedial
Action Plan for the American Creosote Works Site."  Mr. Akindele stated that the remedial action plan
for the American Creosote Works site had saved EPA and the state some $30 million.  The cost savings
were achieved by changing the cleanup levels from those for a residential use scenario to those for an
industrial use scenario and by the innovative use of stabilization and solidification. The major factor
affecting the cost, he said, was the change in cleanup  levels.

Ms. Laura Evans of EPA Region 5 then provided a presentation on natural landscaping. Ms. Evans
discussed the benefits of using natural landscaping for the restoration of Superfund sites.  When natural
landscaping is used, she said, savings can be realized  in the costs of irrigation and maintenance. Further,
she pointed out, natural landscaping provides habitat for wildlife.  Natural landscaping may cost more to
plan and establish, but those costs are recovered quickly through subsequent savings, she said. Ms.
Evans distributed resource materials that support the planning and establishment of natural landscaping.
                                             5-12

The third presentation, titled "Integration of Removal and Remedial Authorities Under a Community
Based Environmental Protection Initiative in Charleston, SC," was made by Mr. Craig Zeller of EPA
Region 4. Mr. Zeller described the project, a community-based environmental protection initiative to
address contamination caused by phosphate fertilizer sites concentrated in a small area of Charleston,
South Carolina.  Time-critical and non-time-critical removal actions have been used or proposed to
address the problems, he said.  In addition, he continued, RCRA and CERCLA programs have been
integrated to address problems at a ferro chrome alloy producer in the area.

Mr. Lawrence Granite of EPA Region 2 made the final presentation, "Experiences and Lessons Learned
from a Successful Superfund Cost Recovery Action." Mr. Granite described the lessons learned in the
successful cost recovery case involving the Helen Kramer Landfill site. EPA recovered $95 million plus
interest after 10 years of discovery and litigation, he reported.  Mr. Granite cautioned that reverse
bifurcation, which allows discovery first on the remedy and then on liability, is to be avoided. He also
encouraged RPMs to call on the services of the National Enforcement Investigation Center (NEIC) and to
use the techniques of alternative dispute resolution. Mr. Granite also stated that it is possible for a third-
party  defendant to become a direct defendant. Finally, Mr. Granite suggested USACE could be helpful
in countering attacks by consultants for the PRP; he counseled RPMs to 'think carefully" before settling
for less than the full amount of costs to be recovered."

Research on Biological Effects of Contaminants Presentations - Thursday, August 5,1999
Two presentations were made during this session. First, Mr. Martin Alexander of Cornell University
discussed bioavailability, aging, and irrelevant chemical data.  The amount of a toxic chemical in soil that
actually is available to cause harm is almost always less, sometimes very appreciably so, than that
available when the chemical is in solution at the same concentration, he pointed out. Sometimes, he
continued, toxicity cannot be detected, even when reasonable concentrations of the chemical are found.
The extent of bioavailability varies with the compound; the soil type; the organism; and, presumably, the
route of exposure, he explained further. In addition, bioavailability declines with time as the compound
persists, even with no change in concentration, as determined by methods currently approved by EPA,
Mr. Alexander said, noting that the phenomenon is known commonly as aging. Generalizations about
bioavailability based on the properties of the compound and the soil and persistent time or aging are
either tenuous or nonexistent, he said. Therefore, default values and concentrations targeted for cleanup
are inappropriate, he said in conclusion, adding that methods are being developed that will help
overcome some of the problems he had discussed.
                                             5-13

 Mr. Michael Denison, Ph.D. of the University of California then provided a presentation on cell
 bioassays for the detection of hazardous chemicals. Exposure to specific halogenated aromatic
 hydrocarbons (HAH), including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD), furans (PCDF) and
 polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), can have a variety of toxic and biological effects in animals and
 humans, he said. In the environment, including some hazardous waste sites, the presence of those
 chemicals as complex mixtures of HAHs, rather than as individual congeners, has complicated detection
 and made it almost impossible to predict accurately the biological and toxic potency of such mixtures in
 animals at risk, Dr. Denison continued. Although there are techniques of chemical analysis that can
 detect minute quantities of HAHs, such procedures can be extremely costly and time-consuming, he
 pointed out, noting that such techniques are not appropriate for the analysis of small sample volumes.
 Identification and quantification of the compounds also is complicated by the fact that techniques and
 standards for identifying many of the congeners and isomers do not exist, he said. Even if reliable
 congener-specific concentrations of HAHs in animals can be determined, he continued, it is almost
 impossible to predict their biological effects because the toxic potency of PCB, PCDF, and PCDD
 congeners can vary tremendously, and because interactions among various HAHs have exhibited
 synergism, additivity, or antagonism. Therefore, said Dr. Denison, inexpensive and rapid bioassays
 capable of detecting and  estimating the relative toxic potency of complex mixtures of HAHs would be
 useful.

Reuse and Redevelopment Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
 Mr. Mike Bellot of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel. Mr. Rafael Gonzalez of EPA OERR began the
 discussion by describing new initiatives related to redevelopment.  He explained that EPA had awarded
 10 pilot grants in the area, adding  that the agency was to award 40 more such grants in the second quarter
of FY 2000. Ms. Sheri Bianchin of EPA Region 5 then discussed redevelopment and reuse as they are
affected by Superfund reforms.  She emphasized that RPMs must begin to understand such subjects as
zoning and land use. She explained that the risk assessment and land use are significant factgrs in
considerations related to  land use. Ms. Bianchin then shared information about two sites, American
Chemical and Harbor Metal, to describe how she used  Superfund reforms to promote faster, fairer
cleanup at the sites.  Mr.  Bellot then discussed the reuse issues related to the Waukegan Plating site. He
described the lessons learned, for example, future land use can be used to move the cleanup forward,
negotiation of reuse and redevelopment requires more time than arranging other dispositions of property,
and efforts can be used to bring many people together to focus on one common goal.
                                             5-14

ROD Quality Workshop - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Mike Goldstein of EPA OERR moderated the workshop. First, Mr. Steve Ells of EPA OERR made a
presentation on the ROD review. He provided extensive information about the ROD review conducted in
fiscal year 1998, noting that copies of the information can be obtained from the branch chiefs in the
regions. Mr. Ells also summarized the weaknesses found during the review.  Mr. Goldstein then
presented the new 1999 ROD guidance, announcing that the guidance was to be available shortly on the
Web at .  The scope of the guidance
is to present the'process, not policy, said Mr. Goldstein. He explained that the new guidance is necessary
because existing guidance is outdated; changes had been made that affect RODs, he said. The developers
of the guidance, he continued, hope that it will address the weaknesses identified by the General
Accounting Office (GAO) and update and clarify documentation and that RPMs and others will find it
easy to understand.  Ms. Kathleen Aisling of EPA Region 6 then explained there are three reasons it is
worth the effort to develop a good ROD:  (1) it is the basis for everything that happens in the future,
including enforcement, (2) it is a public document that will be read by many citizens, and (3) the RPM's
peers will review the ROD. Ms. Aisling then distributed a check list for use in reviewing RODs and
described how it is used.  She also distributed a technology reference sheet to be used at sites.  Ms. Diane
Easley of EPA Region 7 then spoke, stressing that all items included in the ROD must be supported in
the administrative record. Ms. Easley then distributed a ROD time line, which she used to help
summarize the key steps and tasks involved in the issuance of a ROD.  She emphasized the need for
coordination with various EPA programs and states agencies.  Participants then discussed the level of
detail in the ROD check lists and the preparation of drafts of RODs.

Sediments and Urban Rivers Panel Session ~ Thursday, August 5,1999
Ms. Sharon Jaffess of EPA Region 2 moderated the panel session. Ms. Jaffess first presented an
overview of problems affecting urban rivers and the cleanup of sediment.  Mr. Ernie Watkins then
described the work EPA headquarters had done on the sediment issue, reviewing the results of several
national studies and reports.  Mr. Watkins also described the efforts of several national work groups, both
public and private, that are studying the sediment issue. Ms. Bonnie Eleder of EPA Region 5 then
reviewed that regions's multimedia approach to the sediment issue, providing an example of such a case.
Region 5 personnel explained and demonstrated the Fully Integrated Environmental Location Decisions
Support (FIELDS) System used in the region for planning sediment investigations. After the
demonstration, panelists answered questions from the audience.
                                             5-15

-------
 Soil Vapor Extraction Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
 Mr. Michael Gill of EPA Region 9 moderated the panel. Mr. Bernard Schorle of EPA Region 5 began
 the discussion by describing the soil vapor extraction (SVE) operations at the Ninth Avenue site in Gary,
 Indiana. The owner, he explained, had dumped waste on the ground throughout the site, which originally
 had been a wetland. The original ROD called for pumping and treating the groundwater and excavating
 some soils, he noted, before describing how SVE worked at the site. Mr. Jeff Gore of EPA Region 5 then
 discussed the Seymour Recycling site. He described the design and operation of the SVE system
 installed there, informing participants that more information about the site could be obtained on the Web
 at . Mr. Gore also discussed the Fischer-Calo site in Indiana, for which SVE had
 been  included in an amendment to the ROD. He then demonstrated a check list for shutdown of an SVE
 system prepared by Region 5. Mr.  Gili then discussed a new SVE guide titled 'Troubleshooting and
 Optimization Guide," which he announced was to be published by the fall of 1999. The guide is based
 on systems in operation at six Air Force bases in California, he noted.
Superfund Job Training Initiative Panel Session - Friday, August 6,1999
Ms. Noemi Emeric of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel.  Ms. Pat Carey of EPA OERR began the
discussion by explaining that the mission of the Superfund Job Training Initiative (JTT) is twofold: (1) to
provide training to people in communities in which a Superfund action is taking place, and (2) to help
find jobs for those individuals after they are trained. RPMs play a major role in the success of the JTI,
she said,  because they can help remove barriers and demonstrate EPA's commitment to the community.
Ms. Emeric and Mr. Novak then explained that, although trained individuals do not always find jobs at
Superfund sites, their training often helps them to obtain jobs at other sites, such as Brownfields sites, or
other positions in environmental work. Ms. Emeric explained that, in Region 5, efforts have been made
to involve members of minority groups in programs that provide participants with environmental training
and training in "employability  skills."  She explained further that EPA provides funds to the National
Institute of Environmental Health and Safety (NIEHS), which manages a competitive grant program.
EPA then nominates sites for funding and assists NIEHS grantees in creating local partnerships. Ms.
Beverly Negri of EPA Region 6 then noted that the program is not limited to a certain age group, but can
encompass many generations, including the elderly.  She explained that the JTI program is  beneficial to
residents of a community because they learn job skills.  It is beneficial, as  well, to communities because
it helps to strengthen their economic base, she pointed out, adding that involvement of local leaders helps
build support for the program.  Mr. Novak then outlined the four steps to success for the JTI program:
(1) build  partnerships, (2) find  people, (3) train people, and (4) employ people.  He then discussed the JTI
at the Douglas Road she. Ms. Ruby Williams of EPA Region 6 then introduced the "Many Diversified
                                            5-16

-------
Interests" site in her region. A number of issues affect the site, a former foundry in Houston, she said,
describing the minority community in its vicinity as "historically underemployed."  She described how
outreach efforts in the city played a role in implementing the Superrund JTI in the community. She
explained that participants were trained in a location distant from the community, a circumstance that
helped the trainees to focus on the training at hand.  Ms. Williams stated that the program had enjoyed
much success, with 28 of the 30 individuals recruited to participate completing the program, and 22 of
those trained individuals currently employed.

Technical Resources Panel Session - Friday, August 6,1999
Ms. Rose Marie Caraway of EPA Region 9 moderated the panel. To begin the discussion, Mr. Tim
Gouger of USAGE described the USAGE Rapid Response International Removal Action Program. The
mission of the program, he said, is to provide international time-critical removal action capability at all
federal hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste sites. Ms. Kim Hoang of EPA Region 9 then discussed
the mission and organization of EPA  ORD. She stated that the functions of ORD are to conduct an
agencywide integrated program of research and development, disseminate scientific and technical
knowledge, and implement activities  though its offices in EPA headquarters and its national centers and
laboratories.  Mr. Gill then discussed ORD's technical support centers and contacts, environmental
technology Web links, hazardous substances research centers, and other technical resources available
through ORD.

Vapor Monitoring in Basements Panel Session - Thursday, August 5,1999
Mr. Brad Bradley of EPA Region 5 moderated the panel. Mr. Henry Schuver of EPA's Office of Solid
Waste (OSW) began the discussion with a description of evolving indoor air issues. He described such
issues from the perspective of EPA headquarters and discussed how such issues have  been addressed at
two sites, one in Colorado and the other in Alabama. Mr. Richard Grabowski of USAGE then  spoke
about the Himco Dump Superrund site, a landfill site at which accumulation of vapors under the cap had
occurred.  Mr. Bradley then discussed the Conrail Site in Indiana, where vapors have migrated into
basements from a groundwater plume in which high concentrations of carbon tetrachloride are present.
Ms. Pat VanLeeuwen then discussed the risk associated with vapors in basements and described how to
calculate, or otherwise obtain, a health-based cleanup objective. The point was made that RPMs are in
need of guidance related to vapor migration into basements.
                                            5-17

-------
 Closing Plenary Session - Friday, August 6,1999
 Ms. Hoffrnan facilitated the closing plenary session, which began as Mr. Muno presented awards, acting
 for Mr. Fields. The awards recognized the following RPMs for their extraordinary work with
 communities in the vicinity of their sites:
               Mr. Nestor Young of EPA Region 4
               Ms. Yvonne Jones of EPA Region 4
               Mr. Mike McAteer of EPA Region 5
               Ms. Diana Eggerman of EPA Region 7
The session continued with a discussion of the nomination of candidates to serve as officers of the
NARPM for 2000.  The nominees were: Ms. Hoffman, Ms. Aisling, Mr. Lim, Mr. Novak, Ms. Lesley
Derascavage, Mr. Rodriguez (declined), Ms. Monica Matzke (declined), Ms. Bianchin, Mr. Dave Turner,
Ms. Anne Kelly, and Mr. Matory. Participants discussed at length the establishment of procedures that
would avoid the simultaneous expiration of the terms of all officers. It was moved, seconded, and carried
that the co-chairs to be elected currently would serve for just one term. Ms. Jaffess agreed to establish a
committee to review the by-laws of NARPM to determine whether, after 2000, the elections and the
terms of the co-chairs elected could be staggered. The nominees were asked to submit a brief biography,
including a discussion of their involvement in NARPM, to Ms. Nadia Hollan of EPA Region 9, manger
of the election process.  Ballots were to be forwarded to the NARPM regional representatives, who in
turn were to distribute them to the membership and collect completed ballots. The ballots then were to
be returned to Ms. Hollan, who was to tabulate them and announce the results.

Participants then discussed the location of the NARPM meeting in 2000. After some discussion, it was
determined mat, during a previous meeting, the RPMs had chosen Philadelphia as the site of the meeting,
thereby making the RPMs of EPA Region 3 the hosts of the meeting.

Participants then discussed the issue of the upgrading of RPMs to the GS-14  level.  It was determined
that, although there is significant support for obtaining more GS-14 positions for RPMs, the division
directors do not support such an action. Ms. Hoffman made the point that the responsibilities of an RPM,
as listed in the NCP, help to convince management that more RPMs should work at a GS-14 level.
Another RPM observed that, once the duties of managing contractors, PRPs, and others are calculated,
RPMs often are responsible for managing more people than are certain people at higher levels in EPA.
                                            5-18

-------
The RPMs then discussed whether they wished to continue to invite representatives of states to the
NARPM meeting. Ms. Kelly stated that, if the NARPM co-chairs continue to invite representatives of
states, they must begin to invite representatives of tribes. Concern was expressed about the large number
of people who are not EPA RPMs who would attend the meeting if representatives of states and tribes
were invited.  It was suggested that the meeting be redesigned to include EPA RPMs in all sessions,
while inviting others only to training and other general sessions.

In the final action of the meeting, it was moved, seconded, and carried that a vote on the continuation of
the NARPM initiatives would be taken when more members of the NARPM were present than had
attended the closing plenary session. The meeting then was adjourned.
                                            5-19
