The report documents the results of the U.S. EPA Kepone Mitigation Feasibility Project for the Hopewell James River Virginia area, describing: the chronological development of the Kepone contamination problem from 1966 to 1978, the nature of Kepone contamination in Hopewell, and the James River; Kepone effects and impacts; evaluation of methods to mitigate the problem; and the resultant findings and recommendations. The Appendices to the report document the efforts of the individual funded participants. The report findings provide a basis for limiting the impact of Kepone contamination. Field Sampling and modeling studies delineate areas requiring special attention. Analyses of a wide range of research studies on the biota affected by Kepone provide guidance on both continuing impacts and promising areas of investigation. Engineering, field, and laboratory analyses of world-wide conventional (dredging) and nonconventional mitigation methods (physical, biological and chemical) have established fruitful areas of development and eliminated others which are ineffective or hazardous. The analysis and synthesis of engineering and biological studies, modeling studies and field investigations provides a useful reference source to approach other serious in place toxic pollutant problems in this country's waterways.
