Part of: Dredging and Dredged Material Disposal

Abstract: Bioassay and associated tests have been developed and are being refined to assist in the evaluation of the environmental impact of dredged material disposal alternatives. Simulated rainfall-surface runoff water quality tests are being refined to determine the potential for contaminant mobility resulting from physicochemical changes in dredged material following upland disposal. A management strategy has been developed that incorporates the above test results for selection of environmentally acceptable dredged material disposal alternatives.
