Frequent Questions

Does MARSSIM work with existing regulatory cleanup programs?

MARSSIM is flexible enough to use with many existing statutory programs, such as CERCLA, RCRA, FUSRAP, BRAC, and State programs. Its comprehensive guidance addresses all phases of the surface soil survey process for demonstrating compliance with dose- or risk-based requirements: planning, conducting, evaluating, and documenting.

EPA, NRC, DOD, DOE, and most state regulatory programs have adopted MARSSIM and accept its use in their regulatory program. However, you may need to consult with your program office, regulator, or agency representative about applying MARSSIM to specific situations.
