This report documents the results of a study to determine the feasibility of removing spilled insoluble hazardous materials from the bottom of flowing watercourses. Descriptions are given of two full-scale systems developed to suck up spilled materials and contaminated bottom mud, remove excess water from the pumped slurry, and decontaminate the water removed so that it can be returned to the stream.
