The document provides guidance on the response to spills of chemicals that sink in water bodies and contaminate bottom materials. It describes the decisionmaking process associated with defining spill parameters and impacts and selecting appropriate response measures. It also describes the cleanup and mitigative technologies that may be used, including containment, removal, treatment, disposal, and in situ techniques. The document provides governmental and industrial technical personnel with the means to respond to bottom material contamination situations, whether for quick response or for long-term remediation.
