The objectives of the NSCSI project were to : (1) develop the Sediment Source Inventory, a national data base of point source pollutant discharges from municipal, Federal, and industrial point sources that may result in sediment contamination, and (2) to analyze these releases using a screening-level hazard analysis procedure that ranks chemicals, geographic areas, and industries of concern based on the potential to cause sediment contamination.
