Corrective Measures Study
The CMS will consist of the identification, screening, and development of alternatives for removal, containment, treatment, and/or other remediation of the contamination identified at CSSA. The CMS will be based on results of the RFI, identified corrective measure technologies, and results of any treatability studies. The CMS is estimated to represent approximately 10 percent of the required actions at CSSA. The CMS includes identification and development of alternatives (15 percent of CMS), evaluation of alternatives (60 percent), and reports (25 percent). The CMS has not yet been initiated.
Task VIII: Identification and Development of Corrective Action Alternatives
This task consists of the following three components:
An update to the DCC Report;
Establishment of corrective action objectives; and
Identification, screening, and development of corrective measure alternatives.
Completion of this task is not currently funded. This task makes up approximately 15 percent of the CMS phase. It was not active during Quarter 22, and no actions are anticipated during Quarter 23.
Task IX: Evaluation of Corrective Measures Alternatives
This task includes a description and evaluation of each corrective measure alternative that passes through the initial screening. For each alternative that warrants a more detailed evaluation, documentation of how the potential remedy will comply with each of the project standards will be included. The project standards will reflect the major corrective action objectives and components of remedies, including cleanup of releases, source control, and management of wastes generated by remedial activities. Detailed documentation for each additional evaluation criteria, including long‑term reliability and effectiveness, reduction in the toxicity, mobility, or volume of waste, short‑term effectiveness, implementability, cost, and results of public involvement, will also be included.
Completion of this task is not currently funded. This task makes up approximately 60 percent of the CMS phase. It was not active during Quarter 22, and no actions are anticipated during Quarter 23.
Task X: Reports
Reports associated with the CMS include progress reports and a CMS Report. The CMS Report will include background information regarding the facility and current conditions, as well as descriptions of corrective action objectives, potentially applicable technologies, limitations of potentially applicable technology, corrective measure alternatives identified after initial screening, and corrective measures standards and evaluation criteria.
Completion of this task is not currently funded. This task makes up approximately 25 percent of the CMS phase. It was not active during Quarter 22, and no actions are anticipated during Quarter 23.
