The National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) is developing effective, inexpensive remediation strategies for contaminated sediments. This program theme includes the evaluation of capping to contain/stabilize contaminated sediments. Studies were conducted by NRMRL to evaluate the resuspension of surface materials contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). This information, along with U.S. EPA's sediment guidance document, is intended to: (a) be used as a reference for site managers and U.S. EPA decision makers who are considering the environmental impacts of capping contaminated sediments, and (b) provide a better understanding of the techniques and mechanisms that can be applied to minimize the resuspension of contaminated material during capping. The results of two NRMRL studies undertaken to evaluate solids resuspension before, during, and after capping of contaminated sediments are summarized. These two studies were both conducted at marine sites. One study was carried out at the Boston Harbor/Mystic River Site in cooperation with U.S. EPA Region 1 and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The other study took place at the Wyckoff/Eagle Harbor Superfund Site off Bainbridge Island, WA, in cooperation with U.S. EPA Region 10 and USACE.
