The EPA and State of Montana have forwarded their comments on the draft Remedial Design Work Plan to Envirocon. The Remedial Design Work Plan identifies the overall organization, goals, methods and procedures for the entire project, from the initial drawdown to post-dam removal. The plan also spells out the process to develop preliminary, draft final and/or final design plans, field sampling plans, health and safety plans, construction drawings, technical specifications, remedial action work plans and other provisions necessary to guide the cleanup.

Envirocon will revise and release the RDWP later in February.
