Abstract : This note summarizes the findings of a workshop convened to assist Corps regulators in the evaluation of hydrocarbon contamination in dredged material. The workshop participants suggested a list of 15 compounds to be used in a tiered testing approach. The 15 compounds occur frequently in contaminated sediment, can be analyzed reliably, and are considered to be representative of hydrocarbons that are known in general to have toxic effects. pg1.
