Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: This report is the first in a five-phased process designed to locate the most suitable sites for the long-term management of material dredged from three naval bases located in southeastern Virginia. These bases include the Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown, Yorktown, VA; the Naval Supply Center, Cheatham Annex, Williamsburg, VA; and the Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek, Norfolk, VA. The long-term management strategy (LTMS) used in this process consists of evaluating existing management options, formulating the alternatives, performing a detailed analysis of the alternatives, implementing the LTMS, and conducting a periodic review and update of the LTMS. The purpose of such an LTMS is to provide a consistent, logical procedure by which alternatives can be identified, evaluated, screened, and recommended so that the dredged material placement operations are conducted in a timely and cost-effective manner. This report describes the location, dredging requirements and material characteristics, environmental resources, and disposal resources and alternatives of the three naval bases. Based on the results of Phase 1, recommendations are made for Phase 2 of the process.
