Abstract:

This report is a sedimentation study, forming part of an assessment of environmental impacts associated with in-lake disposal of dredge spoil on Lake Superior. This assessment was requested by the St. Paul District Office of the US Corps of Engineers and funded under contract number DACW37-74-C-0013 to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in August, 1973. Field and laboratory studies focused on two locations where a substantial amount of dredging is done annually Duluth-Superior and the Keweenaw Waterway.
