U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) document Evaluation of Dredged Material Proposed for Discharge in Waters of the U.S. - Testing Manual. This document is commonly referred to as the Inland Testing Manual (ITM). The purpose of the ITM is to provide guidance regarding technical protocols under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) for evaluating proposed discharges of dredged material associated with navigational dredging projects into waters of the United States. This memorandum provides background information on the ITM, describes its scope and applicability, and outlines a schedule for its implementation. In accordance with that schedule, the ITM will be phased in over the next 18 months.
