The primary goal of this technical note is to provide guidance on how to determine the suitability of a contaminated dredged material for bioreclaimation. Rapid screening protocols are demonstrated with two different sediments, and references are provided to the technical literature. This guidance is designed to serve as the second phase in a two-phased biotreatability management decision guide. It is assumed that the physical and chemical analyses of the dredged material Winfield and Lee 1999 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 1998 have been conducted and that a determination has been made that the material is not suitable for open-water disposal. Selection of the appropriate bioreclamation technology and evaluation of its efficacy should be performed in the third phase.
