Abstract : Environmental impacts, greater technological capabilities, and improved evaluation techniques make the disposal of large quantities of dredged material more complex and involved. Also, a marked decrease in the number of available upland disposal areas has become more evident as the US coastline becomes more populated, mandating accurate forecasting techniques to be used in the selection of dredged material disposal sites. This paper summarizes methods used in the planning, design, and construction of the Theodore Ship Channel and the disposal island (Gaillard Island) in Mobile Bay.
