(3) Procedures should provide that field
teams be capable of performing environ-
mental assessments, biological
monitoring, and contamination surveys as
technically and economically feasible.
(4) Procedures should identify means for
field teams to locate and track effluent
plumes and detect the presence of released
hazardous materials in the environment.
The emergency plan should describe integration of the
consequences assessment with the process for
categorization of an event as an emergency,
determination of the appropriate emergency class, and
protective action decision making, including projections
of onsite and offsite consequences.
EALs for monitoring system readings, measured
release concentrations/exposure rates, and projected
concentration/exposure rates should be identified in
procedures and be related to emergency class and
Procedures should provide that consequence
assessment activities should produce results that are
directly comparable to guidance for determining
protective actions and emergency classification.
