Option for Treatment and Disposal of Contaminated Sediments from New York New Jersey Harbor Book Description :

The U.S. Army Engineer District, New York, dredges several million cubic yards of sediment annually to maintain Federal navigation channels in New York and New Jersey Harbor. Most of this dredged material has characteristics that allow its disposal into open water or ocean sites. However, contaminant concentrations in some of the materials have led to this and other investigations of alternate management techniques for dredged material that is unacceptable for open-water disposal. These alternatives include ocean disposal with capping, coastal borrow pit disposal with capping, land-based or in-water confined disposal, and treatment of sediment to reduce the contaminant concentrations to levels acceptable for unrestricted disposal or beneficial uses. This report assesses available treatment and disposal alternatives for dioxin-contaminated dredged material from New York/New Jersey Harbor. Included in the assessment of treatment alternatives are a survey of available options, results from bench-scale tests of selected treatment technologies, development of the overall process train for promising treatment alternatives, an assessment of the feasibility of implementing the alternative, preliminary cost estimates, and a comparison of alternatives. Disposal alternatives are discussed on a similar basis and are compared with treatment alternatives.

Sediment Management at the River Basin Scale Book Description :

Sediments are a natural part of aquatic systems and they are essential for the hydrological, geomorphological and ecological functioning of those systems. For society they are important and represent an important resource. However, due to the ever increasing use of river catchments, sediments need to be managed in a balanced and sustainable way. Sediment Management at the River Basin Scale reviews some of the key requirements and challenges facing scientists, river basin managers, and policy makers for sustainable sediment management at the river basin scale, and puts forward important recommendations. This volume also available as part of a 4-volume set, ISBN 0444519599. Discount price for set purchase. * First book to consider management at the basin scale * State-of-the-art review chapters * New conceptual frameworks and approaches to management

Review of Removal Containment and Treatment Technologies for Remediation of Contaminated Sediment in the Great Lakes Book Description :

The Water Quality Act of 1987, which amended the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, authorized a program specifically aimed at contaminated sediment problems in the Great Lakes. Section 118, paragraph (c)(3), directs the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) to carry out a 5-year study and demonstration projects relating to the control and removal of toxic pollutants in the Great Lakes, with emphasis on the removal of toxic pollutants in the Great Lakes, with emphasis on the removal of toxic pollutants from bottom sediments. The Act specified that priority Areas of Concern for implementation of demonstration projects were Saginaw Bay, Michigan; Sheboygan Harbor, Wisconsin; Grand Calumet River, Indiana; Ashtabula River, Ohio; and Buffalo River, New York.

Contaminated Sediments in Ports and Waterways Book Description :

Contaminated marine sediments threaten ecosystems, marine resources, and human health. They can have major economic impacts when controversies over risks and costs of sediment management interfere with needs to dredge major ports. Contaminated Sediments in Ports and Waterways examines management and technology issues and provides guidance that will help officials make timely decisions and use technologies effectively. The book includes recommendations with a view toward improving decision making, developing cost-effective technologies, and promoting the successful completion of cleanup projects. The volume assesses the state of practice and research and development status of both short-term and longer-term remediation methods. The committee provides a conceptual overview for risk-based contaminated sediment management that can be used to develop plans that address complex technological, political, and legal issues and the interests of various stakeholders. The book emphasizes the need for proper assessment of conditions at sediment sites and adequate control of contamination sources.

Sediment Dredging at Superfund Megasites Book Description :

Some of the nation's estuaries, lakes and other water bodies contain contaminated sediments that can adversely affect fish and wildlife and may then find their way into people's diets. Dredging is one of the few options available for attempting to clean up contaminated sediments, but it can uncover and re-suspend buried contaminants, creating additional exposures for wildlife and people. At the request of Congress, EPA asked the National Research Council (NRC) to evaluate dredging as a cleanup technique. The book finds that, based on a review of available evidence, dredging's ability to decrease environmental and health risks is still an open question. Analysis of pre-dredging and post-dredging at about 20 sites found a wide range of outcomes in terms of surface sediment concentrations of contaminants: some sites showed increases, some no change, and some decreases in concentrations. Evaluating the potential long-term benefits of dredging will require that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency step up monitoring activities before, during and after individual cleanups to determine whether it is working there and what combinations of techniques are most effective.
