Abstract:

A framework for long-term management of open-water sites based on guidance from Corps Headquarters in response to amendments of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act Ocean Dumping Act was developed. A chronology of major events in the Corps hopper-dredging program since publication of the Red Book in 1954 was compiled. The Dredging Research Program DRP benefits analysis accurately documented and quantified the tax dollars that could be saved by using products of the DRP. It was determined at the 90-percent confidence level that in 1994 dollars, annual recurring benefits of 17 million and annual one-time benefits of 19 million could accrue, and 5-year recurring and 5-year one-time benefits in excess of 100 million each could result from use of DRP products.
