Alternative technologies and techniques for dredging, disposal, and treatment of contaminated sediments are reviewed. Selection of appropriate technologies for contaminated sediments management depends on the physical and chemical profile of the sediments, and particularly on the physical state (liquid, solid, or gaseous) of contaminants of concern and changes in state that may occur at different phases of dredging, disposal, control and treatment. Determination of acceptable criteria governing concentrations of contaminants in water, sediments and soils, and air is the major requirement for selecting specific technologies for managing contaminated sediments.
