Summary Presents a preliminary review of the type and occurrence of contaminated sediments identified in each of Sweden's 21 counties. Contaminated mineral-based (minerogenic) and/or cellulose-bearing ("fiber-bank") sediments occur in at least 19 counties and, at many sites, likely pose unacceptable risks that require effective management (remediation).
