Abstract:

Dredged material has been used beneficially by mankind for many years; in the past two decades it has purposely been used to restore and protect existing wetlands, and to establish new wetlands. The technology to accomplish this work was developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES), and is available upon request to all interested private and public entities.
