Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Intended to supplement several previous studies, this report describes the results of a field evaluation of the method for predicting containment area effluent quality for a dredging project on the Houston Ship Channel. The project and field data collection process are explained, along with details of laboratory tests run on sediment and water samples. The resulting prediction of the tests are compared to the measured field data, and conclusions are drawn. This study furnished further verification of the validity, accuracy, and usefulness of the predictive method, especially in cases of consideration of highly unusual local conditions.
