Abstract: Investigations were conducted of the interim-designated ocean dredged material disposal site (ODMDS) and of environmental amenities considered to be within its zone of influence. Physical, chemical, and biological characteristics and their interactive effects were measured. The probable dispersion fate of dredged materials that might be dumped at the site was modeled. All information was compared with relevant provisions of Section 103 of the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972 (MPRSA), as amended. The conclusion is that the interim-designated site is suitable for designation for disposal of dredged material. The site meets all evaluation criteria for use as an ocean dredged material disposal site.
