Abstract: This technical note describes vegetation characteristics and implications for management of confined disposal facilities (CDFs) in the Great Lakes Area of Concern (GLAC). This is the first technical note for the Dredging Operations and Environmental Research (DOER) Program research task “Effects of Plant Species on the Transfer of Contaminants to CDF Animals.” This DOER research task will evaluate the effect that various plant species/ communities have on the fate of contaminants in CDFs. As part of the first step in this effort, floristic inventories were conducted and compiled to determine the composition of CDF vegetation in the GLAC. The data in this technical note are provided as examples of the typical vegetation community development one would expect on a CDF in the Great Lakes and in similar freshwater dredging regions. Funding for this work was provided by the U.S. Army Engineer District, Detroit, and the Dredged Material Management Focus Area of the DOER Program.
