Port expansions frequently result in adverse environmental impacts that require mitigation to preserve living marine resources. A systems analysis approach was used to select the location and design of an artificial reef that was part of the mitigation required for redevelopment of the Port of Wilmington, Delaware. Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM) and decision risk analysis were among the methods used to plan cost effective, reliable mitigation. The results suggest that these methods can be used to assist in resolving the complex problems common in mitigation planning.
