Abstract

The overall goal of the project is to help private owners navigate the dredging/disposal process and make informed decisions that are:

  • Cost effective (including all steps of the process);
  • In compliance with regulations; and
  • Geared to specific needs (material volume, sediment type and level of contamination).

As part of this objective, we have attempted to do the following:

  1. Describe the regulatory process for disposal alternatives (upland, ocean, and others) in simple but accurate terms.
  2. Develop a complete list of disposal alternatives.
  3. Develop a comprehensive alternatives analysis for possible disposal alternatives and screening process.
  4. Develop a resource compendium in an appendix, including resources (websites, reports, contacts, used to develop information).
