Contents Notes
The goal of the symposium was to promote discussion of the issues raised and recommendations presented in the National Research Council (NRC) report "Contaminated Marine Sediments in Ports and Waterways: Cleanup Strategies and Technologies," released in March 1997. Appendix D of the proceedings provides an Executive Summary of this NRC report. Although there are no simple solutions to the problems created by contaminated marine sediments, the problems can be managed effectively using a systematic, risk-based approach that incorporates incremental improvements in decision making, remediation technologies, and project implementation. Sponsors of the symposium were interested in educating and promoting dialogue among the diverse stakeholders involved in sediment management and in finding potential solutions. The material in the proceedings has been condensed and edited. Acoustic techniques for mapping the distribution of contaminated sediments -- Disposal technologies used in the Chesapeake Bay -- Geotechnics of utilizing dredged sediments as structural fill -- Testing new technologies -- Enhancements and impediments to applying new technologies -- Multistakeholder decision approach for contaminated sediment management -- Evaluation of remedial alternatives for contaminated sediments: A coherent decision-making approach -- Establishing environmentally acceptable end points for the management of sediments and soils -- Improving decision making -- Beneficial uses of processed sediment -- Mining industry issues -- Environmental dredging -- Developing techniques for source control -- Long-term monitoring -- Enhancements to decision making and implementation -- Industry response panel -- Appendices.
