The Interagency Workgroup on Five-Year Reviews will showcase the training module "CERCLA Five-Year Review Training-A Guide for Writers and Reviewers at Federal Facilities" and a guide for writing an Executive Summary for federal facility five-year reviews. These tools were developed through a collaborative effort by EPA, Department of Defense and its components, Department of Energy and Department of Interior. The training module is a tool to help improve the federal agency site manager's understanding of what information and data are needed to determine whether the remedy remains protective of human health and the environment. By writing more concise reports, the review and approval time by the regulators will be reduced. The guide for the Executive Summary is an agreed upon format for federal facilities. The guide will help site managers organize and summarize the report in a succinct and easy to understand document for the public.
