Abstract:

The nature, magnitude, and distribution of contaminants in dredged material vary within and between sites, making consideration of the potential beneficial uses of dredged material more difficult. This technical note provides guidance on the nature and types of physical, engineering, chemical, and biological characterization tests appropriate for determining the potential for beneficial uses of dredged material in aquatic, wetland, and upland environments.
