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 study and development of field monitoring tools to evaluate Monitored Natural Recovery (MNR) processes in aquatic sediments (1). Previous researchers have demonstrated the potential for PCB dechlorination in sediments using other evaluation methods, such as chiral chemistry (2) and laboratory microcosms (3). In contrast, the approach taken by NRMRL involved characterization of dechlorination in sediments using PCB congener fingerprinting and polytopic vector analysis (PVA). NRMRL conducted studies to evaluate the long-term recovery of PCB-contaminated sediments via reductive dechlorination, including the magnitude, extent, and rates of ortho and meta plus para dechlorination reactions with sediment depth and time (4, 5). The information learned is summarized in this Sediment Issue, which is intended to be used as a reference for site managers and U.S. EPA decision makers who may be considering MNR as a contaminated sediments management strategy.
