Abstract : This paper describes the research approach being used in the Interagency Field Verification of Testing and Predictive Methodologies for Evaluation Dredged Material Disposal Alternatives Program (Field Verification Program - FVP). Evaluative techniques are being conducted on sediment samples collected from the channel prior to dredging. The same parameters will be measured in the field after disposal takes place. The accuracy of the laboratory predictions will be determined, and the ecological importance of the parameters measured will be assessed. This information will help shape the implementation of the environmental regulations governing dredging and disposal.
