Superfund Sediment Sites: EPA Considers Risk Management Principles but Could Clarify Certain Procedures
J. Alfredo Gomez (au)
Water bodies in the U.S., including rivers and harbors, may contain contaminated sediments that pose risks to ecosystems and human health. The federal governmentńˇ╗s principal program to clean up hazardous waste sites, including sediment sites, is the Environmental Protection Agencyńˇ╗s (EPAńˇ╗s) Superfund program. Recently estimated costs for cleanups of some large Superfund sediment sites have ranged from about $500 million to $1.4 billion. This report examines: (1) the steps EPA has taken to help provide national consistency in its management of Superfund sediment sites; (2) the extent to which EPA followed these steps at selected Superfund sediment sites; and (3) the challenges EPA officials said the agency faced in managing cleanups of Superfund sediment sites. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
