The need to consider the environmental benefits and consequences of various management options continues to intensify as (1) environmental problems become more complex, (2) the Means necessary to solve problems become more technical, time-consuming, and expensive, and (3) the costs to implement remedial strategies increase. Decisions which include remediation must be weighed carefully against the costs and effectiveness of the solutions. One environmental problem receiving considerable attention is that of contaminated sediments. The primary question is whether contaminated sediments should be remediated or left in place. Contaminated sediments are typically a legacy issue; however, continuing loads from other point and non-point sources confound clear solutions. Given the reality of limited funds for clean-up, environmental managers need to define what degree of remediation would achieve desired results and which sites are the priorities. In this regard, managers must justify expenditures and need to understand the environmental improvements expected to result from any remedial action on both local and lake-wide scales.
