Abstract: Erodibility experiments were performed on sediments obtained over a 15-mile stretch of the Lower Passaic River, NJ, to assess remediation options and prioritize remediation as part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund remedial investigation. A total of 28 sediment cores were extracted from 14 locations on the Passaic River. Measurements of erodibility were performed with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Sedflume to determine erosion as a function of depth for different shear stresses. Additionally, bulk density, organic content, and grain-size distribution as a function of depth were determined.
