Abstract: This paper presents the edited text and prints of slides of the February 1976 briefing on the status of the Dredged Material Research Program (DMRP) being directed at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, Vicksburg, Mississippi. These briefings, given semiannually to representatives of the Corps of Engineers and other Federal agencies, are one phase of DMRP information dissemination and aid in coordinating activities among the agencies. The briefing summarizes the status, phases, and goals of the DMRP. Significant progress is being made in all DMRP project areas as evidenced by the shift of emphasis from paper and laboratory studies to field studies. These field studies are the testing grounds for many of the concepts being explored and for verification of laboratory results. Other field studies are demonstrating the productive uses of dredged material and the feasibility of dredged material becoming a natural resource. Problems, accomplishments, and objectives within each of the four projects are discussed: the Environmental Impacts and Criteria Development Project, the Habitat Development Project, the Disposal Operations Project, and the Productive Uses Project. The research covers a diversity of problems on the disposal, effects of disposal, and possible uses of dredged material and is conducted under contract with universities, corporations, and Government agencies throughout the United States. .In February 1976, the DMRP was 60 percent complete and proceeding according to schedule.
