Description A pilot study to test a standardized assessment method was undertaken by Ecology’s Environmental Assessment Program between 2003 and 2005. This report summarizes the estimated costs of the pilot study, and evaluates the valuable lessons learned during that effort.

The report also presents costs estimates and recommendations for the creation of a permanent groundwater assessment program within Ecology. The proposal envisions establishing between two to four assessment teams that would simultaneously conduct ambient groundwater monitoring and characterization studies in different parts of the state. The estimated biennial cost for the proposed program would range from $1.1 to $2.2 million.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
