Abstract: This paper summarizes the development of a risk assessment framework to provide risk-cost policy alternatives to prioritize remediation actions for hazardous wastes. The framework is a fuzzy Bayesian approach. A case study of an actual U.S. Army installation is used to illustrate the decision-making paradigm proposed here.
