Abstract : The Bureau of Ports and Harbors, Ministry of Transport, has undertaken two projects that relate to sea bottom management. The Marine Environment Improvement Pilot Project is an experiment to clean organic bottom sediment accumulated in the closed inland bays and inland waters, and the Port Pollution Control Works is a project to clean polluted bottoms in the port areas. This paper introduces the prospect of these two projects in relation to the 6th Five-Year Plan for Port Improvement Program (period from 1981 to 1985).
