Innovative Approaches to Resolving Port Mitigation and Dredge Disposal Issues

by Peter Grenell, California State Coastal Conservancy, Oakland, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '93


Two problems are increasingly troublesome for port and harbor authorities planning expansion and modernization of their facilities: the long time involved in identifying, gaining approval for, and implementing mitigation projects to compensate for fish and wildlife habitat losses caused by port development; and finding and implementing acceptable ways of disposing of dredged material from harbor and channel dredging. This paper suggests some new approaches for solving these critical problems, based on current California experience.
