ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF STORMWATER IMPACTS ON SEDIMENT RECONTAMINATION: GUIDANCE DOCUMENT
Reible, D.
SERDP Project ER-2428, 15 pp, 2018

The recommended approach in this guide to assess and evaluate stormwater discharges and sediment recontamination is based upon the implementation of those practices in SERDP Project ER-2428 [https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/47712/454846/file/ER-2428%20Final%20Report.pdf]. The recommended approach to stormwater characterization for sediment recontamination involves the following steps: (1) watershed characterization; (2) stormwater discharge monitoring; (3) sediment recontamination monitoring; and (4) stormwater and receiving water modeling. SERDP has selected a follow-on project to examine the effectiveness of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) relative to the characteristics identified here as contributing to sediment recontamination. The follow-on project (ER18-1371) will examine specific BMPs at use in naval bases for their ability to control contaminant and particulate distributions and the bioavailability of discharging contaminants. https://www.serdp-estcp.org/content/download/48431/460794/file/ER-2428%20Guidance.pdf
