About HRS Quickscore

HRS Quickscore assists in scoring sites using the HRS. Created by EPA’s Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI), HRS Quickscore is an electronic set of HRS scoresheets that executes site score calculations in real time. It assists EPA staff in developing conceptual site models for Superfund site assessments. The product is intended for use in planning and implementing preliminary assessments, site inspections and other data collection efforts according to HRS criteria, as well as writing and review of HRS documentation records.

HRS Quickscore's key functions include:

  • Quick HRS pathway and site score calculations.
  • HRS scoresheet preparation and printing.
  • Easy identification of HRS data gaps in conceptual site models.
  • Back of the envelope tracking of data gaps, notes, refinements and adjustments in scenario testing.
  • Scratchpad note-taking capability.
  • Ability to add "User Defined Substances" for use in scoring a site. This allows users to select a substance that is not currently in EPA’s Superfund Chemical Data Matrix (SCDM) or adjust values of a substance when SCDM factor values change.
  • Includes the Subsurface Intrusion Component.
  • Version 3.2.2 includes the capability to update SCDM values. Quickscore will automatically check for updates and prompt users if action is needed with an “Updates Available” notice or users can update values at any time using the “Update SCDM Values” button.
