Presentation Overview:

Remediation Process Optimization (RPO) is the systematic evaluation and enhancement of site remediation to ensure that human health and the environment are being protected over the long term at minimum risk and cost. Successful remediation managers understand not only technologies to be deployed at sites, but also the underlying technical basis that supports the decision-making process. An understanding of these management methods and techniques taken together will serve as an excellent resource for moving forward on RPO projects.

The purpose of this ITRC training is to present an overview of the material covered in five technical fact sheets that ITRC's RPO Team produced to enhance site remediation optimization and decision-making. The training modules provide additional information and techniques to improve project schedules, effectively manage resources, emphasize risk, and discuss tools to efficiently cleanup contaminated sites. The ITRC RPO Fact Sheets provide detailed information on the following topics:

  • Performance-based Management (PBM)
  • Exit Strategy
  • Data Management, Analysis, and Visualization Techniques
  • Analysis of Above Ground Treatment Technologies
  • Life-cycle Cost Analysis
These fact sheets were developed following the feedback to the RPO team's Technical and Regulatory Guidance Document Remediation Process Optimization: Identifying Opportunities for Enhanced and More Efficient Site Remediation (RPO-1, September 2004) and training, "What is Remediation Process Optimization And How Can It Help Me Identify Opportunities for Enhanced and More Efficient Site Remediation?" (training archive available at The document and training archive are recommended as prerequisites for this RPO Advanced Internet-based training course.
