Great Lakes Partnership Principles for Enhancing Habitat at Sediment Remediation Sites

The Great Lakes Legacy Act exemplifies a unique approach for accelerating sediment cleanup and restoring habitat in the largest system of fresh surface water in the world. Funded under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, The Great Lakes Legacy Act provides federal funding to promote cost-sharing partnerships for sediment remediation, including partnerships with State agencies and industry. This webinar from the ASTSWMO Sediments Focus Group shares the presentations made during the ASTSWMO Brownfields and Superfund Symposium in August, 2018, and it provides training on partnering with stakeholders, bridging gaps and thinking outside the box in order to leverage funding, integrate habitat improvements and revitalize tribal, recreational and economic interests.

 

The Clean Water Act and Sediment Remediation: Using the Data Quality Objectives Process to Help Assure that Remediated Sediment Sites are not Re-Contaminated

The ASTSWMO Sediments Focus Group developed this report for environmental authorities over both the CWA and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in a jurisdiction including State, federal, Territorial and/or tribal decision makers. This paper suggests a planning method to help identify possible sources of pollutants that could prevent a site from reaching remedial cleanup levels, remedial action objectives and/or from being recontaminated following the implementation of a successful remedial action.
