EPA 530-R-97-007 Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Soils Treatment Technologies  


This document provides guidance on how to design and conduct soil remediation activities at RCRA and other hazardous waste sites so that transfers of contaminants from contaminated soil to other media (i.e., clean soil, air, and surface or ground water) are minimized. Its primary purpose is to provide guidance on preventing cross-media transfers of contaminants during implementation of soils treatment technologies for treating contaminated soils or solid media in compliance with applicable state and/or federal regulations. Releases that may result in transfer of contaminants from the soil or solid media to water, air or other natural media are generally referred to as crossmedia transfer.
