Abstract:

This Framework Guidance Manual FGM provides guidance to Department of Defense DoD end-users and to the broader environmental site remediation community on the use of reactive amendment in situ technologies for the remediation of contaminated wetland hydric soils. It serves as a scientific and engineering reference document for the evaluation of in situ remedies that involve addition of reactive amendments or sequestration agents to address persistent contaminants in hydric soils. The methods described provide the user with a toolbox of methods with which to approach site characterization monitoring, treatability testing and demonstration, and remedy implementation. This FGM 1 provides a repository of literature sources for active in situ remedial projects, 2 outlines conceptual approach to managing the remediation of wetlands hydric soils, 3 includes suggestions for project objectives, metrics, and evaluation criteria, 4 provides discussion of implementation means and methods, and 5 supports an assessment of the technology cost. Although developed for the Department of Defense project manager, this FGM may be useful for other agencies evaluating potential remedies for contaminated wetlands or professional practitioners seeking solutions for public and private sector clients.
