Abstract The report is an extract from a comprehensive study on ocean waste disposal in selected geographic areas. Its purpose was to provide information to assist in the development of criteria for the control of ocean waste disposal. An intensive field survey was conducted in the New York city metropolitan region during the spring of 1973. The purpose was to establish personal contact with agencies and persons cognizant of ocean disposal practices in the New York Bight. This report presents the findings of that survey. It includes specific sections on ocean dump site characteristics; their geographic location; type and volume of material dumped; method of disposal; description of disposal sites; current monitoring procedures; local regulating agencies; estuarine economics; an extensive chronology of related major events; and, alternatives and recommendations for ocean disposal in the New York Blight.
