Abstract : The Department of Defense (DOD) is working with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop a health-based groundwater (GW) cleanup standard for trichloroethylene (TCE). Reevaluation of the health risk of TCE exposure may provide sufficient evidence for EPA program offices (such as the Office of Water) to review and perhaps revise the Drinking Water Standard for TCE. This paper will describe some of the issues related to the cost of remediating TCE contaminated GW as they pertain to alternate TCE cleanup levels.
