    The contaminated sediments are then removed using conventional construction equipment. This technique has an advantage over dredging in that it produces far less water for treatment (USEPA ). These common sediment treatment technologies are advantageous in highly contaminated source zones where there is a need to quickly reduce the sources. National Research Council.

      The primary method of contaminated sediment remediation today is dredging. Dredging creates challenges in residual contamination and finding areas to construct confined disposal facilities. In-situ capping involves the placing of a subaqueous cover over contaminated sediments to stabilize sediments, minimize their re-suspension and transport. The presence of contaminated sediment poses a barrier to essential waterway maintenance and construction in many ports and harbors, which support 95% of U.S. foreign trade.

The “Contaminated Sediments in Ports and Waterways Report” conducted by the National Research Council estimates in situ treatment costs at $10/yd3, compared to ex situ treatment costs at $/yd3.

The Council also gives the cost for ex situ containment at $10/yd3, even though some believe that in situ treatment will cost less that ex. The sediments underlying many of our nation’s major waterways are contaminated with toxic pollutants from past industrial activities.

Cleaning up contaminated sediments is expensive and technically-challenging. Sediment sites are unique, complex, and require a multidisciplinary approach and often project managers lack sediments experience.

Introduction to Contaminated Sediments yards of these sediments are so contaminated they require special, and sometimes costly, handling. If dredging to improve navigation cannot be conducted because sedi- ments are contaminated, the volume of shipping on these waterways will decline.
