Abstract : This study determined the engineering feasibility and environmental acceptability of removal and disposal of floatable debris from Boston Harbor. A total of 533 waterfront structures were found to be sources of debris. The total volume of floatable debris and non-floatable material from these sources is estimated to be about 3.2 million cubic feet and 4,500 tons, respectively. (Author)
