Abstract: Systematic management of confined dredged material disposal sites is becoming increasingly necessary as competition for land use intensifies in regions in which most dredging projects are located. Long-term management of either single or multiple disposal sites entails determination of the storage capacity required to contain the sediments to be dredged over a period of years. Techniques for constructive management of confined disposal sites have been developed at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station.
