Abstract: This report is designed to address concerns regarding the potential toxicity of dredged material from San Francisco Bay and to provide input into the San Francisco District's Long-Term Management Strategy for dredged material disposal. To this end, a review of the regulatory history of dredged material management within San Francisco Bay and the development of sediment toxicity tests to assess dredged material is provided. Included in this discussion is a national overview of sediment toxicity, as well as the toxicity of San Francisco Bay sediments. Information gaps are identified and prioritized. Finally, specific research hypotheses are posed that will allow selected technical questions to be addressed by direct experimental examination.
