A Risk-Management Strategy for PCB-Contaminated Sediments emphasizes the need to consider all risks at a contaminated site, not just human health and ecological effects, but also the social, cultural, and economic impacts.

Given the controversy that has arisen at many PCB-contaminated sites, this book provides a consistent, yet flexible, approach for dealing with the many issues associated with assessing and managing the risks 5/5(1). A Risk-Management Strategy for PCB-Contaminated Sediments emphasizes the need to consider all risks at a contaminated site, not just human health and ecological effects, but also the social, cultural, and economic impacts.

Given the controversy that has arisen at many PCB-contaminated sites, this book provides a consistent, yet flexible, approach for dealing with the many issues associated with assessing and managing the risks. Summary: This book broadly covers risk management for PCB contaminated sediments (and similar contaminants in sediments).

The importance of community involvement in any strategy is emphasized. Thin-layer capping is discussed within and in-situ treatment section of a chapter on “Assessing Management Options”.

A Risk-Management Strategy for PCB-Contaminated Sediments emphasizes the need to consider all risks at a contaminated site, not just human health and ecological effects, but also the social, cultural, risk-management strategy for PCB-contaminated sediments book economic impacts.

This book provides a risk-based framework for developing and implementing strategies to manage PCB-contaminated sediments at sites around the country.

The framework has seven stages, beginning with problem definition, continuing through assessment of risks and management options, and ending with an evaluation of the success of the management strategy. At the center of the framework is.

Risk management of PCB contaminated sediment sites should comprehensively evaluate the broad range of risks posed by PCB contaminated sediments and associated remedial actions. These risks should include societal, cultural, and economic impacts as well as human health and ecological risks.

Sediment cleanup projects are further complicated by the diverse range of policies, perspectives, risk attitudes and personal values that pertain to risk management decisions. Government institutions, private organizations and local communities face a number of difficult problems connected to risk management for contaminated by: 1.
