Abstract: The "Lockheed - EPA, Environmental Monitoring Systems Laboratory - Las Vegas
(LESC-EPA, EMLS-LV)" database consists of data obtained from the records of
various state and federal agencies responsible for ongoing investigations of
waste disposal sites. It was established to evaluate the performance of the
indicator parameters specified for use in the Comprehensive Environmental
Response, ... Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). The database is now being
used to evaluate the success of other regulatory monitoring programs, to
develop ground-water contamination profiles for hazardous waste disposal sites,
and to design industry-specific ground-water monitoring systems to protect
human health and the environment.
The database contains primarily ground-water monitoring data and some soil data
from approximately 550 hazardous waste disposal sites investigations across the
United States. These sites are regulated by various laws including RCRA and
CERCLA. The data can be sorted by regulatory classification, by location/site,
industry, region, state, or nation; or by sampling date.
