Abstract : Since 1982, the American Association of Port Authorities Special Dredging Committee has continued to emphasize direct liaison with concerned members of the Congress and officials of the United States Army Corps of Engineers as well as other federal and state agencies and officials with an interest in or control of dredging laws and regulations. We are actively seeking the opportunity for any forum at which we can present our problems and suggest the changes in procedures and testing that are necessary. We have been successful in publishing our position in magazines read by the dredging, business, and port industries and have been able to attend and participate in meetings and conventions representing elements in a position to influence our objectives.
