Abstract:

The proposed action involves the dredging of Stamford Harbor, Connecticut with the dredged material being disposed of at the Eatons Neck Disposal Area in Long Island Sound. Approximately 150,000 cubic yards of shoal material will be removed. Most of the material will be from the East Branch Channel. Following deposition of the polluted material at the disposal site, a comprehensive monitoring program will evaluate the impacts of the disposal operation on the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the environment.
