      Contaminated sediments in freshwater systems. Home / Books / Contaminated sediments in freshwater systems. By Frank R. Spellman Added April 3, Assessment of freshwater sediments can determine whether chemical concentrations are sufficient to cause adverse effects on aquatic organisms or organisms higher in the food chain, including humans. Contaminated sediments have also threatened the viability of many commercial ports through the imposition of restrictions on dredging of navigational channels and disposal of dredged materials. Overall, contaminated sediments have been linked to 11 of the 14 beneficial use impairments that have been documented at the Great Lakes AOCs.

Assessment of freshwater sediments can determine whether chemical concentrations are sufficient to cause adverse effects on aquatic organisms or organisms higher in the food chain, including humans. This book presents methods for assessing sediments and includes an integration of physical, chemical, and biological information.

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.

National Academy Press, Washington, D.C. 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. Ports with waterways rely on dredging to maintain and, at times, deepen shipping channels and harbors. Dredging itself disturbs aquatic ecosystems and the fisheries that depend on them.

If the bottom sediments are contaminated, digging them up can release heavy metals and toxic chemicals into the water column, where they can enter the food.
