evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of existing technol- og~es; 3. develop a system for evaluating the most applicable technology to be used for remediating identified ecosystem impacts due to sediment contamination in the nearshore areas of the Great Lakes.

Contaminated sediments are a significant problem throughout the U.S. and in the Great Lakes basin. Contaminants in the bottom sediments of rivers and harbors Sediments contaminated from decades of industrial discharges and urban and agricultural non-point source pollution present potential risks to aquatic organisms, wildlife, and human health.

For almost 2 decades, NOAA has compiled Great Lakes sediment chemistry, sediment toxicity, and tissue chemistry through its free and accessible Query Manager database. Thanks to the GLRI, NOAA has been able to expand its Query Manager database to include more data collected from the Great Lakes and associated tributaries and upland areas.

These SECs were used to classify toxicity data for Great Lake sediment samples tested as part of the USEPA Great Lakes National Program Office (GLNPO) Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments (ARCS) Program (Fox and Tuchman ; Ingersoll et al.

Contaminated Sediments. Industries, waterfront developers, resource managers, and site owners face real challenges as they work to remediate or control environmental impacts at contaminated sediment sites.

The process of addressing legacy pollution can be complex, and remediation costs can reach hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars.

Information from the ARCS program is to be used to guide the development of Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) for 42 identified Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs) as well as resource. In developing the CSM, assumptions should be verified. For example, in the cleanup of PCB contaminated sediment in the Ashtabula River, one of the underlying initial assumptions was that the release of PCBs was historic; however, when baseline sampling was performed prior to starting the dredging operation, it was discovered that there was an active source on one of the river's tributaries.for contaminated sediment assessment and remediation, as well as to influence national sediment cleanup guidance and policy.
