Abstract : The purpose of this note summarizes published information on suspended solids transport into the water column during dredged material disposal by barge and hopper at open-water sites. The note provides an overview of field data referenced in the more widely quoted studies on open-water disposal and compares collection methods and results. The importance of using mass units of measurement rather than only volumetric units in accounting for the fate of dredged material is also discussed. (MM)
