The focus of this EPA-sponsored workshop was to develop a framework for evaluating various management strategies aimed at reducing the risks posed by toxic materials in marine/estuarine riverine sediments. Areas specifically addressed included: (1) setting appropriate management priorities; (2) selecting best available management alternatives; and (3) implementing the chosen alternative. Participants were directed to better define the problem, refine questions that decision-makers should ask, and offer recommendations for improving the process. A series of case studies was presented that described the nature and extent of sediment problems and possible management solutions. Participants were divided into 3 workgroups (priority setting, option selection, option implementation) to develop the management framework. Results of the workgroup discussions were presented in a plenary session. Appendices include: participants, case study summaries, and overviews of relevant laws/regulations, and overviews of a related workshop on contaminated sediments.
