Abstract: Introduction: One of the most important conclusions of the Dredged Material Research Program (DMRP) was that there is no inherent effect or characteristic of any disposal method that rules it out of consideration from a technical standpoint prior to specific on-site evaluation. In addition, for technical reasons, upland disposal has become Jess attractive than it once was in terms of managing contaminated dredged material. Thus, when appropriate, the environmental effects of ocean disposal should be evaluated along with the other available alternatives. The evaluation must include regional (site specific), national, and international considerations.
