Abstract: Results of an investigation conducted to determine the engineering feasibility of using dredged material to expand an existing marshland area are presented. Dredged material obtained from maintenance dredging operations was found suitable for use as marsh substrate and site conditions were found adequate for construction of a containment facility. Factors evaluated in the study include site-specific feasibility of marsh expansion using dredged material, sizing of the demonstration area to meet water-quality and storage needs, preliminary design of the containment facility, procedures for placement of dredged material, and identification of alternative construction methods, materials, and costs. Overall feasibility of marsh expansion was demonstrated and additional investigations were recommended for the project.
