With the increased use of our nation's coastal and inland waters, regulatory agencies are frequently confronted with difficult decisions in resolving conflicts between alternative uses of these waters, while at the same time striving to protect overall environmental quality. A significant number of management decisions facing these agencies concern the definition of permissible levels of contaminants in marine sediments. For example, in Commencement Bay the Washington Department of Ecology and EPA are attempting to identify those areas in which sediment contamination poses the greatest environmental threat, with the ultimate intent of initiating remedial action in these areas. At the Four Mile Rock dredge disposal site, regulatory agencies are confronted with an immediate need to establish a permissible level of contamination for sediments which are to be disposed of at the site.
