Thus, data on the number of operable units at which cleanup plans are under way cannot be compared directly to data on the total number of individual sites at which contaminant releases have been reported. DOE has estimated that a total of 10,000 sites must be cleaned up at its installations (EPA, 1997). Cleanup plans are being prepared for groundwater contamination at a total of 92 projects (or operable units), according to recent DOE data (Tolbert-Smith, 1998). Remedies have been selected for 27 (29 percent) of these projects (Tolbert-Smith, 1998).
