(iii) Approved work practices and scale of acceptable unit costs (per cubic yard, ton, or otherwise) shall be established, if feasible.
(2) Inspection of the areas to be cleaned shall be made by State and Federal representatives to provide a valid basis for approval of work to be done. If work has started or been completed, the inspection is to determine a reasonable basis for approving or disapproving such work. Inspection reports shall include the following types of data:
(i) A geographical reference and specific description of the area recommended for cleanup.
(ii) Estimates in terms of debris volume, i.e., tons, cubic yards, etc., that is covered by the recommendation for each location.

If the State and Federal representatives do not agree, the OEP Regional Director or his representative shall make the determination, and his decision will be final.
(4) Claims for reimbursement shall be verified before payment on the basis of inspections and audits of completed work.
(b) All or a portion of the debris and wreckage may be removed by the Federal Government if requested by the State and when the OEP Regional Di

(1) Whether removal of debris and wreckage is necessary to eliminate threats to health, well-being, or safety of the public.
(2) Whether removal of debris and wreckage is necessary to eliminate a fire or flood hazard which threatens substantial destruction of undamaged public or private property.
(3) Whether removal of debris and wreckage is essential to the economic recovery of the affected community or to the restoration of the land to a productive condition.
