Description The Washington State Department of Ecology adopted a state rule addressing sediment quality known as the Sediment Management Standards, Chapter 173-204 WAC. The rule identifies how sediment quality standards will be used to control sediment contamination from ongoing, permitted discharge sources and to effect contaminated sediment site cleanup. The rule requires the application of specific numerical models for predicting the environmental effects of ongoing discharges and the recontamination potential of contaminated sediment sites after active cleanup. One of the models specifically listed in the rule is the Water Analysis Simulation Program (WASP) developed and maintained by the US EPA.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
