Abstract:

The Puget Sound Dredged Disposal Analysis Program PSDDA is part of the overall effort to develop a comprehensive water quality management plan for Puget Sound waters. One facet of disposal under consideration is the classification of dredge-disposal sites according to the degree of contamination of material accepted. The Strait of Juan de Fuca, due to its depth and relatively high circulation, may qualify as a disposal site for some material unsuitable for Puget Sound disposal. Equal in importance to the physical and environmental feasibility of disposal in the Strait of Juan de Fuca is the potential conflict with Canadian disposal practices and regulations. Therefore, a review of Canadian open-water, unconfined disposal regulations has been conducted.
