Abstract:

A phase of the DMRP which was particularly important to the overall objectives of the program was comprised of field studies designed to evaluate the actual environmental impact of dredged material disposal at selected sites in the U. S. One of these sites was in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately five miles off of Galveston, Texas. The DMRP project at Galveston consisted of three major components studies on the currents, geology and fate of dredged sediments deposited at the Galveston site water-quality studies on the water column and sediments before, during and after dredge material disposal operations and studies on the effect of dredged material disposal on the numbers and types of aquatic organisms present in the disposal area. This report presents the results of the water-quality studies conducted in the Galveston Bay Entrance Channel disposal area.
