Miscellaneous PaperAbstract: This report is the second in a five-phase process designed to locate the most suitable sites for the long-term management of material dredged from three naval bases located in southeastern Virginia. These bases include the Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown, VA; the Naval Supply Center, Cheatham Annex, Williamsburg, VA; and the Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek, Norfolk, VA. The long-term management strategy (LTMS) used in this process consists of evaluating existing management options, formulating the alternatives, performing a detailed analysis of the alternatives, implementing the LTMS, and conducting a periodic review and update of the LTMS. The purpose of such an LTMS is to provide a consistent, logical procedure by which alternatives can be identified, evaluated, screened, and recommended so that the dredged material placement operations are conducted in a timely and cost-effective manner. This report provides an assessment of various open-water, confined, and beneficial-use disposal options. Based on the results of Phase II, recommendations are made for Phase III of the LTMS process.
