Sediment Remediation at the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River
A sediment removal action was conducted in the Unnamed Tributary to the Ottawa River to address sediments containing polychlorinated biphenyls(PCBs) at concentrations up to 74,000 mg/kg....

Application of the NRC Framework for Evaluation of Remedial Actions at a PCB Contaminated Sediment Site
The National Research Council recently proposed that the framework of the Presidents/Congressional Commission on Risk Assessment and Risk Management be applied to the selection and implementation...

Use of Floodplain PCB Concentrations to Calibrate a River Hydraulics Model
A river floodplain was found to contain measurable quantities of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), presumably deposited during historic flood events. A hydraulic model (HEC-2) was used...

Stabilization and Fixation Using Soil Mixing

Risk Management in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods—The Influence of Public Perception A Discussion
In 1988, a fire at Saint-Basile-le-Grand, Quebec involving a PCB (polychlorinated biphenyls) warehouse sparked continuing controversy which included a two-week evacuation of residents....

Fate of PCBs in Municipal-Sludge Amended Soil
This paper presents the preliminary results of a five-year field study of the fate of PCBs in soil that has been amended with municipal sewage sludge. A first-order model describes the...

Volatilization of PCBs From the Great Lakes
The potential volatilization of polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) and other semi-volatile organic chemicals (SOCs) from Lake Superior and Green Bay, Lake Michigan, is being investigated. The...

Long-Term Fate of PCB Contamination in the New Bedford Harbor, Massachusetts, System
The transport and fate of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at the New Bedford Harbor Superfund site is modeled using a three-dimensional hydrodynamics and sediment-contaminant transport...

Pilot Study of Dredging and Disposal Methods—New Bedford, Massachusetts Superfund Site

The Distribution of PCB Contaminated Sediment in the Kalamazoo River Valley, Michigan
Heightened environmental awareness beginning in the 1970s focused upon lowering contaminant levels in the Kalamazoo River system through the improvement of water quality. The Michigan...
