PASI Webinar Series
The CERCLA Education Center (CEC) Preliminary Assessment and Site Inspection (PA/SI) Webinar Series is an intermediate training course designed for personnel who are required to compile, draft and review PA, SI and HRS documentation records and packages submitted for sites proposed for the National Priorities List (NPL). This course is open to EPA, federal, state, tribal and contractor personnel who support site investigation programs.
The PA/SI Webinar Series provides an introduction to the Superfund site assessment process and describes the preliminary assessment and site inspection phases of this process. The course will incorporate a mix of lecture and exercises using Quickscore for each of the four pathways. The objective of the exercise is to give participants the opportunity to evaluate and score PA information using the HRS Quickscore software. Participants will use information from a fictitious site to (1) evaluate and calculate a preliminary HRS score, and (2) develop release and target hypotheses that should be pursued in an SI.

PA/SI Module 3: Site Evaluation and Scoring Site Sources
In the second half of this module, the instructors will apply the Quickscore software to an example PA. It will review “sources” for the purpose of the HRS. Participants will review appropriate site information and the instructors will lead them through inputting the information into the Quickscore software.
