This document provides technical and policy guidance for project managers and management teams making remedy decisions for contaminated sediment sites. It is primarily intended for federal and state project managers considering actions under CERCLA, although technical aspects of the guidance are also intended to assist project managers addressing sediment contamination under RCRA. Many aspects of this guidance also will be useful to other governmental organizations and potentially responsible parties (PRPs) that may be conducting a sediment cleanup. Although aspects related to site characterization and risk assessment are addressed, the guidance focuses on considerations regarding feasibility studies and remedy selection for contaminated sediment. The guidance is lengthy, and users may wish to consult sections most applicable to their current need. To help in this process, a short summary of each of the eight chapters is provided below. Sediment cleanup is a complex issue, and as new techniques evolve, EPA will issue new or updated guidance on specific aspects of contaminated sediment assessment and remediation.
