This report discusses certain dredged material disposal alternatives and provides guidelines and concepts in planning for land improvement projects using dredged material. It draws information from Dredged Material Research Program DMRP research reports, literature surveys, field demonstrations, and greenhouse studies to provide guidance in land improvement projects. Environmental, technical, economic, social, and legal aspects of projects are presented as well as outline of project planning procedures and dredged material transport systems. Three dredged material land improvement techniques are detailed surface mine reclamation, sanitary landfill, and agricultural use. Planning, construction, and equipment considerations are presented for each technique. Local, state, and Federal government sources who have jurisdiction or expertise in the various aspects of land improvement projects are included in the report. The report describes techniques for land improvement which utilize dredged material productively as alternatives to conventional disposal methods in regions where land acquisition is difficult and open-water disposal infeasible. The Appendices provide summaries of DMRP research upon which this report is based. Author
