The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) used a dynamic field activity to conduct an initial site screening on the Callaway Drum Recycling (CDR) site in Polk County, Florida, during 2001. The dynamic field activity combined on-site data generation with on-site decision making. Colorimetric analysis provided the in-field data that were used to identify and quantitate potential contaminants in shorter time frames and at less cost than those needed for sample analysis by offsite fixed laboratories. The resulting report saved the FDEP significant amounts of time and money by providing them with the data they needed to negotiate a Consent Order with the property owner. As a result, the FDEP minimized the resources they needed to invest in the site and remediation activities have begun much sooner than would have otherwise occurred. This two hour seminar provides an opportunity for participants to hear directly from the FDEP project manager and contractor about how and why they developed their program to facilitate this kind of work, the problems they faced in implementing the project, and the benefits they have realized as a result of their efforts. Ample time is provided to question the presenters and discuss issues that concern participants.
