Objectionable conditions associated with confined disposal of dredged material were studied through on-site investigations of four U.S. Army Engineer Districts, and discussions with Corps personnel in ten other districts. Three general conclusions were reached 1 Techniques are available for the prevention of some objectionable conditions associated with the effectiveness of confined disposal areas 2 Further study is needed at this time to define the extent and significance of most objectionable conditions associated with biological, chemical, and physical changes caused by disposal areas 3 Ecological and land-use issues that are the basis for public opposition to confined disposal areas should be investigated for ways in which the Corps can mitigate these effects.
