Abstract : This note summarizes recommendations of the second petroleum hydrocarbons workshop convened to assist Corps Districts in evaluating hydrocarbon contamination in dredged material. On 15-17 March 1988, a workshop on environmental interpretation of petroleum hydrocarbons in dredged material was conducted at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES). Participants represented government agencies, private industry, and academia, and were selected for their expertise in environmental chemistry and biological effects of petroleum hydrocarbons. The workshop was held at the request of US Army Engineer Districts, Chicago and New York, and followed an earlier (1986) workshop on regulatory evaluation of petroleum hydrocarbons in dredged material. jg p.1
