In 2000, the United States Environmental Protection Agencys (EPAs) Science Policy Council (SPC) initiated the development of a Contaminated Sediments Science Priorities (CSSP) document (formerly titled Draft Contaminated Sediments Science Plan) because contamination of sediments is a multifaceted, cross-Agency issue which can benefit from a more comprehensive and higher level of coordination across EPA program and regional offices. The CSSP Document has four goals to promote the vision of providing a strong scientific basis for addressing contaminated sediments: (1). Identify the science necessary to address the assessment and management of contaminated sediments.; (2). Identify the science gaps and tools that are important in reducing uncertainty in contaminated sediment risk management decision-making.; (3). Recommend approaches to promote necessary scientific activities and research.; and (4). Enhance the level of coordination and communication of contaminated sediment science activities across Agency program and regional offices.
