Subject: Engineering Evaluation and Cost Analysis (EE/CA) documentation.

To Peter Strauss and all interested recipients of the net:

The National Contingency Plan (NCP) statutory law is spelled out in the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act 
(CERCLA) of 1980 (AKA 42 U.S. Code Annotated section 9601 thru 9675).

According to section 9605 of the above, "The National Hazardous 
Substances Response Plan shall estb. procedures for responding to releases 
of hazardous substances, pollutants and contaminants which shall include 
at a minimum: 

Subsection two: Methods for evaluating incl. analysis of relative cost 
`(EE/CA)' and remedying any releases or threats of releases
from facilities which pose substantial danger to the public health or 

Subsection three: Methods and criteria for determining the appropriate 
extent of removal, remedy and other measures authorized by this chapter.

In regards to your query as to public participation: The RAB at MCAS, 
Tustin, Ca. is currently reevaluating the EE/CA's for a few selected sites.
The Dept. of the Navy (DON) has asked for this review. Our 
recommendations will be forwarded to the OSD (Office of the Sec'y of Defense)
and responded to in a timely manner. On an interesting note, our RAB has 
never had any difficulties with the DON that a `little prayer meeting' 
wouldn't solve. 

Public participation in your community should be encouraged by the 
military entity in charge of the on-site remediation effort. If there's no 
community interaction then it is the above's duty to sincerely try to 
generate active involvement.

P.S.: The downside of utilizing EE/CA's may be that they tend to be 
rather abbreviated expositions.
