An ensemble of analytic tools is used to identify capacity expansion alternatives for the Delaware River dredged-material disposal system. Characteristics of the river and riparian area are stored and analyzed with a geographic information system. Site attractiveness maps produced with these data yield an array of potential expansion sites. The least-costly schedule for acquisition of these sites is identified with branch-and-bound enumeration. For the enumeration, the operation cost of alternative expansion plans is evaluated with a network-flow programming model of the disposal system. Author
