Abstract: Dredged sediments from the Leie catchment (Belgium) that were deposited on land between 70 and 10 1 ears ago were characterized according to their physico-chemical properties, total metal concentrations and porewater composition. Actual and potential heavy metal availability was assessed by means of single extractions with 0.01 M CaCl2, 0.05 M EDTA and 0.43 M acetic acid. A modified version of the BCR (Community Bureau of Reference) extraction procedure, adapted to the elevated acid neutralizing capacity of the sediments, was applied. Information on element mobility was assessed and the used methodologies were critically evaluated.
