Ingersoll USEPA, Great Lakes National Program Office, EPAB, pp, The most recent workshop, Workshop on Research and Development Needs for Long-Term Management of Contaminated Sediments () provides a summary of the work conducted by SERDP and ESTCP to date, provides a review of where DoD facilities are in their restoration implementation, contains input from the Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) what.

contaminated sediments continue to be a costly problem. Research projects like the Green Bay/Fox River study should help scientists and city managers determine cost-effective remediation and cleanup contaminated sediments. Contaminated Sediments and the . the mutagenic potential of contaminated sediments collected from the Saginaw River, the Buffalo River, and Indiana Harbor as part of the Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments Program undertaken by the Great Lakes Program Office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Because of these complexities, the assessment and management of contaminated sediments in ports and harbors, rivers, lakes, and at hazardous waste sites does not easily lend itself to simple “one-size-fits-all” investigation methods and presumptive management decisions. Contaminated sediments are a significant environmental problem and contribute to the over 3, fish consumption advisories nationwide. The Superfund program cleans up sediment sites that present an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment.
