Abstract : The primary objective of the workshop was to focus attention on the wide range of beneficial uses of dredged material along the gulf coast, with special emphasis placed on agency viewpoints, bench nourishment, land stabilization, habitat development case studies, and innovative uses and concepts. Increased cooperation among the diverse number of Federal, State, local, university, and private interests involved with dredged material management was a high-priority goal. The 3-day workshop featured Beach Nourishment and Land Stabilization; Habitat Development: Case Studies; and Innovative Uses and Concepts. Conclusions and observations of the workshop focused on the following: the need for communication and cooperation among all those involved in public interest determinations concerning dredged material placement; the wide variety of beneficial uses of dredged material available for consideration; and the rapidly developing technical status of beach nourishment, land stabilization, habitat development, and innovative concepts. Renewed efforts should be undertaken to identify feasible, cost-effective, and environmentally sound beneficial use options in cooperation with all interests involved. Symposia. (jhd)
