STAKEHOLDER RESPONSE TO THE STUDY REPORT: INDUSTRY PERSPECTIVE

These comments offer the industry perspective on the National Research Council (NRC) report "Contaminated Marine Sediments in Ports and Waterways: Cleanup Strategies and Technologies" (March 1997). From the industry perspective, the state of practice is markedly out of step with the ideal. Too much emphasis is placed on mass removal versus risk control and on simplistic analysis. To advance the field, a review should be conducted by an organization independent of those performing projects, and changes should be implemented to ensure that the expenditure of resources has a real benefit.
