An EWRI Task Committee consisting of 30 members from industry, government, and academia is studying the state of the art in long-term groundwater monitoring (LTM) programs for subsurface waste sites. LTM is an on-going activity aimed at assessing remediation performance, containment integrity, and/or continued non-contamination of the subsurface and groundwater. LTM has different goals and needs than site characterization, so data collection, analysis, and modeling approaches must evolve to meet these new needs. This paper summarizes the committee's recommendations for future research and technology transfer to improve LTM design.
