DREDGED MATERIAL RESEARCH PROBLEMS AND PROGRESS

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has $30 million earmarked for the DMRP. The author describes how the program may be optimized. Some suggested approaches to this research are presented. The primary concern of this research is the significance of chemical contaminants in dredged sediments. Under certain conditions, disposal of dredged sediments (even independent of chemical composition) can be adverse to aquatic life, particularly benthic organisms at the disposal site. This situation is related to the problem of burying of organisms. This kind of problem must be approached differently from that associated with chemical contaminants in dredged sediments.
