Water: Dredged Material Management
Evaluation of Dredged Material Management Alternatives
EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must evaluate alternative disposal options when deciding the correct placement of dredged material. These options include open-water disposal, confined (diked) disposal, and beneficial uses. Evaluating Environment Effects of Dredged Material Management Alternatives - A Technical Framework provides a consistent technical framework for USACE and EPA personnel to follow in identifying environmentally acceptable alternatives for the management of dredged material.
