Abstract: Remediation actions scoped on the contaminated sediments of Lake Saint-Augustin are essential to control the main internal phosphorus intake that accelerates the eutrophication of the lake. Several restoration scenarios combining hydraulic and mechanical dredging, phosphorus inactivation with alum treatment and active capping using limestone are developed on the most heavily contaminated areas of the lake. The use of multicriteria methods for decision support helps to assess the best restoration scenario on the basis of technical, economic, environmental and social criteria. The inactivation of phosphorus by alum followed by the application of a limestone cap on the most heavily contaminated areas of the lake as well as the hydraulic dredging of these areas with polymerisation and filtration of pumped sediments through a filter bag appear to be the two most efficient scenarios to implement at Lake Saint-Augustin on a large scale. Mechanical dredging scenarios come last, even behind the do-nothing option.
