The handbook focuses on small site contaminated sediments remediation with particular emphasis on treatment technologies. It is designed to provide a succinct resource booklet for government regulatory personnel, permit writers, remedial project manages, emvironmental scientists and engineers, plant owner/operators, environmental consultants, and other individuals with responsibilities for the management of contaminated sediments. The handbook is organized to address the major concerns facing contaminated sediment remediation. Chapter I describes the physical and chemical characteristics of sediment, with special emphasis on ways in which sediment property changes affect contaminant mobility. Chapter II addresses sediment toxicity assessment and describes the current status of the EPA effort to address this important topic. Chapter III discusses sampling techniques and analytical and modeling methods used to characterize contaminated sediments. Chapter IV describes removal and transport options. Chapter V presents pre-treatment technologies. Chapter VI, the primary focus of the handbook, describes four major classes of treatment technologies. The chapter offers a comprehensive overview of specific treatment technologies and addresses applicability, limitations, and demonstrated results; it also presents references for further information. Finally, Chapter VII reviews disposal alternatives for contaminated sediments that are not treated.
