Evolution of the CSM Resolution
Decisions for regulatory compliance at sites of environmental contamination require an owner or responsible party to build and rely upon the facility conceptual site model (CSM). As new information is discovered and data gathered, the CSM is continually refined, and the source-transport-receptor linkage becomes increasingly transparent. In this session, participants will explore how facility information and contaminant data are analogous to viewing the CSM as a puzzle – the more complexity that facility/site has, the greater the number of puzzle pieces often associated with each of the three CSMcomponents. Ideally, puzzle pieces should fit. Extending the analogy, identification of the correct puzzle piece for a specific location in the puzzle is akin to application of the data quality objectives (DQO) process. DQO-driven data collection strategies can elucidate CSM components individually as well as illuminate the linkages among the source-transport-receptor. Using the DQO process will help identify the missing (data) pieces, and once assembled should portray a CSM that sufficiently represents the environmental conditions.
