FOREWORD: This volume of the Quality Assurance Representative’s Guide addresses technologies which are used predominantly at hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW) sites to contain or clean up contamination. The reason for this pamphlet’s existence and continuance is to provide construction representatives, those with quality assurance/quality control responsibilities, a reliable checklist type reference for each phase of construction.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) representatives will find the information useful and appropriate for their roles of assuring and controlling construction quality in accordance with the plans and specifications. The guide will, therefore, become a valuable reference when implementing project plans and specifications. Their contents will also help refresh the memory of experience, training, and good common sense. The application of sound knowledge together with a proper sense of responsibility and use of authority will result in meaningful decision making, a factor considered essential for effective quality assurance/quality control. The objective is to produce quality products for Corps’ customers worldwide.
