Abstract: The major programs addressing environmental effects of dredging and disposal that have been or are being conducted by the Corps since 1973 are: Dredged Material Research Program, Dredging Operations Technical Support Program (DOTS), Long-term Effects of Dredging Operations Program (LEDO), Field Verification Program (FVP), and Dredging Contaminated Sediment Work of the IOMT (Improvement of Operations and Maintenance) Program. All of these programs have been or are being conducted by the Environmental Laboratory (EL) of the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) in Vicksburg, Mississippi, using contractual and in-house research and development capabilities. WES has evolved into an internationally recognized center of excellence for studies related to the environmental effects of dredging and dredged material disposal. All current research and programs are under the centralized management of EL's Environmental Effects of Dredging Programs (EEDP).
