Triad Month Session 2: Triad Communications and Systematic Planning
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA

A little over a year ago, over 260 individuals gathered from the U.S. and abroad at UMass-Amherst in Massachusetts to discuss the use of the Triad Approach to conduct investigations and remedial actions faster, better, and at a reduced cost. The Triad Community of Practice (CoP) decided to update and repackage several of those same sessions to benefit the greater CLU-IN audience that either may not have been able to attend the conference, or were not able to attend a specific presentation while at the conference. By doing this, we hope you too can learn more about some of the Triad tools and how they have been applied by your colleagues in the environmental industry.

Today's session is the second in a series of seven sessions collectively comprising Triad Month on CLU-IN. In two successive presentations, this 1.5-hour session will examine the use of Triad in communications and systematic planning. The first presentation by Thomas Palaia, CH2M Hill, prescribes a data management and decision support system as a critical success factor to sustain the long-term viability of Triad via incorporation of Triad data into the overall site management decision making. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate that integration of this toolset can fulfill the data management needs of a Triad project as well as serve a long-term use as a full life-cycle environmental remediation database and decision support system. The second offering by Robert Howe of Tetra Tech EMI discusses work products and strategies for building consensus visions at sites. Lessons learned and examples of what has worked and not worked at sites in various stages of the planning and implementation process will be presented. Methods for bringing consensus vision with stakeholders during project design will be discussed in the context of real-world examples from the U.S. EPA Brownfields, Superfund, and RCRA technical support programs.
