This document provides general guidance for site managers and risk assessors to conduct ecological risk assessment for soils, sediments, surface water and ground water in the context of managing contaminated sites.

It expands the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan Ecological Risk Assessment Guidance to apply to all jurisdictions and align with CCME’s Framework for Ecological Risk Assessment: General Guidance (1996).
