Abstract: The project to deepen the Oakland Inner and Outer Harbors from elevation -42 to -50 ft was federally authorized in 1999 to accommodate the next generation of post-Panamax container ships. The project, which produced a total of 12.8 million yds of the deepening material, made disposal a unique challenge from the perspective of both environmental and financial cost.
