scope:

1.1 This guide pertains to corrective action monitoring before, during and after sediment remediation activities. It does not address monitoring performed during remedial investigations, risk assessments performed before the corrective action, and pre-design investigations. This standard primarily focuses on the approach for remedial actions performed under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Thus, many of the references cited are CERCLA oriented. The standard is also applicable to remedial actions performed under state, federal and international cleanup programs, but the standard does not describe requirements for each jurisdiction. The requirements for the regulatory entity under which the cleanup is performed should be reviewed to confirm they are met.

1.2 This guide provides a framework, which includes widely accepted considerations and best practices for monitoring sediment remedy effectiveness. The monitoring sediment standard guide is intended to complement and support the selection of monitoring techniques, not supersede local, state, federal or international community regulations.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
