Abstract: PURPOSE: This technical note reports results from demonstration-scale studies of dredged material composting at the Jones Island confined disposal facility (CDF), Milwaukee, WI, and the Bayport CDF, Green Bay, WI. The purpose of these studies was to determine the feasibility of bioremediating dredged material contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). This is the third in a series of technical notes on the feasibility of using low-cost and relatively passive biotechnology to reduce hydrophobic organic chemical concentrations in dredged material. The first technical note (Myers and Bowman 1999) described initial studies at the Milwaukee CDF. The second technical note (Myers and Williford 2000) provided an overview of bioremediation technologies that show promise for practical application to hydrophobic organic compounds in dredged material.
