Making available to EPA staff experts within and outside the Federal government

The Superfund Sediment Resource Center (SSRC) is designed to assist EPA staff with site-specific technical issues related to the characterization and cleanup of contaminated sediment sites. Areas of focus for the SSRC include:

  • Site characterization (data collection and evaluation)
  • Use of passive samplers
  • Sampling design and statistical analysis
  • Geomorphology and sediment transport/stability evaluations
  • Modeling (hydrodynamic, fate and transport, food chain)
  • Remedy evaluation, design, and implementation (dredging, capping, monitored natural recovery (MNR), enhanced MNR, In situ amendments, confined disposal facilities, and innovative treatment technologies)
  • Monitoring plan design and implementation
