public, RAP stakeholders, and partnering agencies.
EIGHTEENMILE CREEK STAGE II REMEDIAL
ACTION PLAN UPDATE
A RAP is an integrated, whole ecosystem approach to
remediating impaired water bodies. The RAP first identifies use impairments,
their causes, and contaminant sources, using existing studies and data.
Next, existing cleanup and regulatory programs which apply to the water body
are identified. A coordinated cleanup strategy is then developed to
eliminate the use impairments.
