New sediment document



Guidance for In-Situ Subaqueous Capping of Contaminated Sediments (EPA
905-B96-004) is now available both on line and in hard copy.
http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/sediment/iscmain/

This document provides technical guidance for subaqueous, in-situ capping as
a remediation option for contaminated sediments.  The document provides
descriptions of the processes involved with in-situ capping, identification
of the design equirements of an in-situ capping project, and a recommended
sequence for design.  Guidance is also provided on sediment
characterization, cap design, equipment and placement techniques, and
monitoring and management considerations. This document was prepared for
GLNPO's Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments (ARCS) Program
by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Louisiana State University.
