At complex sites, remediation progress is uncertain and remediation is not anticipated to achieve closure or even long-term management within a reasonable time frame. Both technical and nontechnical challenges can impede remediation. The Remediation Management of Complex Sites web-based document provides readers with practical steps to manage the remediation process at complex sites, despite this uncertainty. A holistic process for remediation management, termed “adaptive site management” is recommended. Using this guidance can improve decision making and remediation management. The guidance is intended to benefit a variety of site decision makers, including regulators, responsible parties and their consultants, and public and tribal stakeholders.
