Abstract: Dredged material confined disposal facilities (CDFs) represent a major capital and operating investment for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). As such, they need to be managed in a manner that maximizes the useful life of the facilities, as well as economic, material, and manpower resources. In some areas of the United States, confined disposal capacity for dredged material is finite and dwindling. Limited CDF storage capacity is expected to present major challenges to the Corps’ navigation dredging mission in the future. A strategy for prolonging the life of US disposal facilities is critical to preserving the continued ability to dredge and maintain our nation’s navigation.
