This study was a cooperative effort by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Mobile MDO and the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES to illustrate application of technology developed by the Dredged Material Research Program DMRP, administered by WES, in solution of field element problems. The study sought to determine if a site on Pinto Island, near Mobile, Alabama, could be used as a long-term disposal facility to contain maintenance dredging material from the Mobile River. Survey data, foundation characterization, and background data were provided by MDO, while evaluation and assessment were conducted by WES. Using DMRP-developed concepts, plans were developed for optimum use of the site, including details of sequential construction, dredged material dewatering, and productive use of dewatered dredged material.
