Description: Technical Note
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) reviews the development of a Regional Sediment Management (RSM) implementation strategy for Mobile Bay, AL. The objective of this strategy is to bring lessons learned through application of RSM and Engineering With Nature (EWN) principles and practices in the coastal environment to a broader perspective for sediment and related environmental management planning for Mobile Bay, specifically the placement within Mobile Bay of maintenance material dredged from the Mobile Harbor navigation channel. The Northern Gulf of Mexico (NGOM) RSM demonstration project concluded in 2003 (Rosati et al. 2001 [rev. 2004]). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), South Atlantic Division (SAD), Mobile District (SAM), continues to implement into District practice the RSM lessons learned from those NGOM studies. RSM is a systems-based approach for collaboratively addressing sediment-related issues within a regional context. RSM seeks to support sustainable solutions for more effective use of littoral, estuarine, and riverine sediment resources in an environmentally sensitive and economically efficient manner.
