The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program SERDP and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP are the Department of Defenses DoD environmental research programs herein referred to as The Programs , harnessing the latest science and technology to improve DoD s environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance and sustain mission capabilities. The Programs fund basic and applied research as well as field demonstration and validation efforts. For additional information, refer to www.serdp-estcp.org. This workshop focused on the research needed to more efficiently deal with the long term management and lengthy restoration of complex sites, with overall objectives to 1 review the current status of complex sites, expectations for restoration, and how they are managed, 2 identify options for achieving restoration goals more efficiently over longer periods of time, 3 prioritize the research and demonstrations needed to show that restoration goals can be achieved more efficiently over longer periods of time, and to develop the new technologies needed to support that paradigm, and 4 promote cooperation with other federal agencies to fund the needed work most efficiently. Approximately 60 invited personnel representing DoD remedial program managers RPMs, federal and state regulators, engineers, researchers, industry representatives, and consultants were in attendance. Two breakout sessions, each with four working groups, facilitated discussions of the current state of the science and ranking of research, demonstration and technology transfer needs for four areas enhanced attenuation, long term monitoring, predictive modeling, and emerging contaminants. The research, demonstration and technology transfer needs were prioritized in each work group Table E-1.
