The U.S. Department of Defense DoD is currently removing, or will be removing, munitions and explosives of concern MEC from millions of acres of land and sea. The DoD has established and continues to improve the full process of transferring military land for public use. As a part of this continued improvement and to provide greater confidence that the MEC threat was removed in accordance with established quality assurancequality control QAQC standards, the DoD incorporated a verification procedure to be employed after all the remediation work is completed. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory PNNL has developed a statistical sampling and analysis software, Visual Sample Plan VSP, which facilitates verification sampling approaches to validate MEC site remediation. This report summaries the objectives and results of a demonstration of these postremediation verification PRV methods in VSP during an actual remediation verification process on the South Tract approximately 157 acres of the NavyDenver Research Institute DRI Site located just east of Denver, Colorado. The primary objectives of this demonstration were to evaluate, illustrate, and determine acceptability of the VSP-PRV sampling methodology as it is applied to possible application scenarios.
