Welcome to ERED

The ERED is a collection of residue-effects data obtained from peer-reviewed literature and reports submitted by U.S. government agencies. The database was developed by researchers at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center Environmental Laboratory through support provided by the Dredging Operations Technical Support program. The ERED data are useful for comparing measured tissue concentrations from a bioaccumulation test - such as those performed to evaluate dredged sediments - to published information that describes the relationship between contaminant tissue concentration and the likelihood of an adverse effect.
