Abstract:

This paper presents the edited text and prints of slides of a briefing on the status of the Dredged Material Research Program DMRP. While significant progress is being made in all DMRP project areas, the briefing emphasizes the problem of transferring this information. Another problem concerns public credibility and acceptance. To confront this, the DMRP is concentrating on field studies that demonstrate the productive uses of dredged material and the feasibility of dredged material becoming a natural resource. Laboratory and field research problems, accomplishments, and objectives are discussed in relation to work units within the four projects that structure the DMRP the Environmental Impacts and Criteria Development Project, Project, the Habitat Development Project, the Disposal Opeations Project, and the Productive uses Project. The work unit studies, which cover a diversity of problems on the disposal, effects of disposal, and possible uses of dredged material, are conducted under contract with universities, corporations, and Government agencies throughout the United States.
