Description Model remedies are standardized cleanup methods intended to help speed up contaminated site cleanups and protect human health and environment. In 2015 and 2016, Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) produced two guidance documents for using model remedies at sites impacted by petroleum: Model Remedies for Sites with Petroleum Contaminated Soils (Publication No. 15-09-043) and Model Remedies for Sites with Petroleum Impacts to Groundwater (Publication No. 16-09-057) (links below). These frequently asked questions (FAQs) provide additional direction and clarification for using that guidance. This FAQ memo applies to any petroleum cleanup site eligible to use a model remedy for cleanup, including both Ecology-supervised sites and independent cleanup actions.
