The document is intended to familiarize On-scene Coordinators (OSCs) and Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) with issues important to the successful selection of technology alternatives available for the remediation of soil and sediment contaminated with PCBs at Superfund sites. The primary purpose of the report is to provide OSCs and RPMs with information on established, demonstrated, and emerging technology alternatives for remediating PCB-contaminated soil and sediment. The secondary purpose is to provide basic information on characteristics of PCBs, regulations governing PCB remediation, sampling and data collection methods applicable to PCB contamination, analytical methods and technologies used to quantify PCB contamination, treatability studies, and sources of further information.
