One of the primary objectives of the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) under EPA’s Strategic Plan is stated as:

“By 2005, EPA and its state, tribal and local partners will reduce or control the risk to human health and the environment at more than 374,000 contaminated Superfund, RCRA, underground storage tank (UST), brownfields and oil sites, and have the planning and preparedness capabilities to respond successfully to all known emergencies to reduce the risk to human health and the environment.”

In order to effectively “reduce or control the risk to human health and the environment,” it is necessary to determine if specific exposure pathways exist. If an exposure pathway exists, we need to evaluate the site to determine whether contamination is present at levels that may pose a significant risk to human health or the environment.
