In this report multiple steps involved in a site specific exposure characterization study is outlined as a demonstration of the use of the "ACTS" and "SAINTS" software. The ACTS and SAINTS software are Windows(TM) based computer interfaces for analytic multi-pathway exposure models and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) integrated groundwater and contaminant fate and transport models respectively. The site considered in this application is in the vicinity of the Otis Air Force Base (OAFB) in Hatchville, Massachusetts. This site is also identified in the current literature as Massachusetts Military areservation (MMR).
