Abstract: The feasibility of use of dewatered dredged material as cover material at landfills in the New York/New Jersey Harbor area has been investigated by the New York District, U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. Landfills are required by law to cover solid waste daily, and to provide a final layer of cover for landfills which have reached their capacity. The use of dewatered dredged material to substitute for conventional cover material could be beneficial because conventional cover is becoming more scarce and expensive.
