Using GIS/GPS to Manage Cleanup of PCB Soils at a USEPA Superfund Site
Track: Environmental Management
Authors: John Lynam
The paper will highlight how the Maine DEP used ArcMap and Trimble GPS equipment to efficiently manage the clean-up of PCB contaminated soils at the site and helped ensure a successful outcome. ArcMap enabled consolidation of thousands of data points and easy creation of site clean-up status maps that could be shared with the project team located throughout Maine and Massachusetts. These processes can be replicated for use at other large cleanup sites.
