This technical note summarizes the types of concerns that lead to requests for environmental windows for Federal navigation dredging projects in both marine and freshwater systems, as well as the frequencies of occurrence of these concerns among U.S. Army Corps of Engineer USACE Districts. The information presented is derived from responses received from a survey sent to all USACE District offices that perform operations and maintenance OM dredging in either marine or freshwater environments. This note serves to update earlier surveys by LaSalle et al. 1991 for dredging operations conducted in coastal and Great Lakes areas and by Sanders and Killgore 1989 for seasonal restrictions associated with dredging operations in freshwater systems.
