The Regional Framework for Testing and Evaluating Dredged Material for Upland Beneficial Uses presented here and the complementary Annotated Bibliography respond to an identified need for such a framework. The lack of adequate regulatory guidance was one of the obstacles to beneficial use of dredged material identified by the Great Lakes Beneficial Use Task Force and described in the final task force report, published by the Great Lakes Commission in 2001.37 The lack of guidance is particularly acute regarding beneficial use of dredged material in upland environments. The Beneficial Use Task Force report noted that most upland beneficial uses are evaluated on a case-by-case basis using various types of guidance or regulations aimed at solid waste, hazardous waste and sewage sludge. The task force recommended that regional guidance be developed for beneficial use of dredged material. This recommendation became one of the top five priorities for the Great Lakes Dredging Team, which served in an advisory capacity to the Beneficial Use Task Force.
