Abstract:
"Records of Decision System (RODS)" was developed to track site clean-ups under the Superfund program and to justify the type of treatment chosen at each site. Additionally, RODS stores information on the technologies being used to clean up sites, and justification for this use. The system is used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and its partners, law firms, engineers, and the general public. RODS houses information on technology justification, site history, community participation, enforcement activities, site characteristics, scope and role of response action, and remedy. RODS is a menu-driven system that can be used to generate reports. EPA Regions submit to EPA Headquarters all information housed in RODS. Data updates are ongoing as documents are received from the EPA Regions. Data Center: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Dissemination Media: Hard copy (agency reports), tape, and online File Format: Access Instructions: RODS is available on the EPA's mainframe. Tapes of the system are available via the Freedom of Information Act process. The National Technical Information Service at 800-553-6847 or 703-487-4650 maintains hard copies of Records of Decision as well as Records of Decision abstracts. The EPA and its partners (for example, states, contractors, and grantees) must obtain a user ID through the National Data Processing Division to access the EPA mainframe. To obtain access to RODS, users must then contact Mike Cullen at 703-603-8730. Hours: The EPA mainframe is available 24 hours/day, except from 8:00 p.m. Sunday to 7:00 a.m. Monday (EST).
