Sediment risk management and communication

Author: Susanne Heise; SedNet (Organization)
Publisher: Amsterdam ; Boston : Elsevier, 2007.
Series: Sustainable management of sediment resources, v. 3.

Summary:
In dynamic river systems, effective and sustainable risk management of sediments, contaminants and their sources must be carried out on a river basin scale. A diversity of interests and risk perceptions, whether environmental, economical, or personal, as well as the broad variety of uses and functions of river systems can lead to conflicts and disagreements about how and where river systems should be managed.

Notes: The results of four workshops organized by the working group on quality and impact assessment of the SedNet (the European Sediment Research Network) EU funded project. The four workshops were: "Chemical Analysis and Risk Assessment of Emerging Contaminants in Sediments and Dredged Materials" held in Barcelona, on 28-30 November 2002; "Impact, Bioavailability and Assessment of Pollutants in Sediments and Dredged Materials Under Extreme Hydrological Conditions" held in Berlin on 3-5 April 2003; "Monitoring Sediment Quality at River Basin Scale, Understanding the Behaviour and Fate of Pollutants" held in Lisbon on 29-31 January, 2004; and "Towards Harmonization of Impact Assessment Tools for Sediment and Dredged Materials", held in San Sebastian, Spain on 10-11 June 2004.
Description: 1 online resource : illustrations.

    schema:description "In dynamic river systems, effective and sustainable risk management of sediments, contaminants and their sources must be carried out on a river basin scale. A diversity of interests and risk perceptions, whether environmental, economical, or personal, as well as the broad variety of uses and functions of river systems can lead to conflicts and disagreements about how and where river systems should be managed. This requires a transparent methodology to assess environmental risks in the river basin, followed by a prioritisation of those sites where measures would yield the highest positive effect for the river basin and where financial resources could be allocated most efficiently. However, risk perceptions may only partially be influenced by scientific assessments of risk, and often also depend on a variety of factors such as personal experience and confidence in institutions. Risk managers must develop methods to balance technical and socioeconomic issues with the aim to reduce risks posed by sediments to environmental and economic resources to a level that is perceived as tolerable by society. Sediment Risk Management and Communication (Vol.3 in the SEDNET mini-series) is based on discussions that were held in the working group on "Risk Management and Communication" which was one of 4 working groups within the European Demand-Driven Sediment Research Network "SedNet". It aims to analyse the current situation in Europe with regard to sediment risk management issues, to draw conclusions from this analysis and to offer recommendations for sustainable risk management from basin to site-specific scale. * A broad overview on sediment quality and impact assessment of pollutants * Suitable for both newcomers to the field of sediment treatment and specialists alike * Outlines practical examples of methods used in sediment quality analysis."@en ;
