Eric J. Dolin, Judith A Pederson
47 pp.
MITSG 91-25

Disposing of dredged marine sediment can be a nightmare. Whether sediment contains clean sand or deadly toxins, disposal must comply with a tangle of federal, state and local regulations. This book is the only available comprehensive guide through the morass of management options, laws, regulations and issues in Massachusetts. As a model, and in its treatment of the basics of materials management and of federal regulations, this guide will also be useful for understanding coastal issues outside Massachusetts.
