Planning and Using Data for Site Assessment
Hosted by U.S. EPA
office of land and emergency management - Superfund

This two-day course was developed to help those involved in Site Assessment activities and decision-making plan up front for collection of data that are adequate for making decisions. In addition, the course provides a basic understanding of what makes the data adequate and how you determine its adequacy.

The objectives of the PUDSA course are identify the data needs for Hazard Ranking System (HRS) and National Priority List (NPL) eligibility and to learn how to:

  • Develop and use a conceptual site model (CSM);
  • Apply systematic planning to your project (using EPA's Data Quality Objective process as a tool);
  • Identify your data needs;
  • Sample smart - get the right samples so that you obtain the right data; and
  • Assess data adequacy
Expectations are that students will be able to better judge the information that they are presented with and fit it into the site assessment evaluation.

It is recommended that students have some working knowledge of the Site Assessment process and that they have previously taken the HRS Training course.
