Sediment transport, Estuaries


This report identifies lessons learned from the body of existing literature on dredge sediment beneficial uses. It also examines the constructive role collaborative processes can play in development of sediment management plans. The authors reviewed approximately 100 documents and reports for this project. Seventeen of those were reviewed in detail based on their relevance in identifying sediment beneficial uses and/or the use of collaborative processes in the development of sediment management plans. A number of these documents were sediment management plans and strategies for specific projects and programs in other locations. The report presents findings and lessons for the consideration of regional stakeholders in development of sediment disposal plans.
