Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to provide a general perspective on how the potential for the cost growth will affect the ultimate cost of remediation at RMA. This paper will utilize data from RMA and around the country to identify the facts most likely to cause cost growth at RMA. Because historical data indicates the remediation of soils has the highest potential for cost growth, compared to groundwater and structures, it is the focus of this paper. It should be recognized that the remediation of groundwater and structures also has the potential to add to cost growth at RMA.
