Abstract: The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, is responsible for maintenance of harbors along the Coast of California from Morro Bay Harbor to San Diego Harbor. As part of this responsibility, maintenance dredging at Channel Islands and Port Hueneme Harbors was accomplished in October 1983 through April, 1984. The total project consisted of dredging and disposing of approximately 1,739,000 cubic yards of material. The work also included construction of a diked disposal basin, installation of weirs for tubidity control, water quality control testing, and appurtenant work. This paper discusses the land disposal of sediments which were unfit for beach disposal.
