Implementation of In Situ Activated Carbon
Remedies at Contaminated Sediment Sites


introduction image Welcome to the Implementation of In Situ Activated Carbon Remedies at Contaminated Sediment Sites web site. This web site is intended to provide an overview of the key technical considerations for Department of Defense (DoD) Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) for using activated carbon as an in-water remedial alternative for managing sediment sites. While this site has been built with an emphasis on the DoD RPMs, input from EPA RPMs, state-lead RPMs, university and research organizations, as well as industry leaders in AC application has been used to construct this site.

SERDP and ESTCP provide investment into science and technology to develop and demonstrate innovative, cost-effective, and sustainable solutions to meet the DOD’s environmental challenges. Within the Environmental Restoration program, many other tools for the management of contaminated sediment sites. A full listing of those projects, and the available tools, are available at the Managing Contaminated Sediments web site.
