ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF DREDGING AND DISPOSAL (E2-D2)
US Army Corps of Engineers public web site for the "Environmental Effects of Dredging and Disposal" ("E2-D2") searchable database of published reports and studies about environmental impacts associated with dredging and disposal operations. Many of the reports and studies are available for download from this site. Description from the E2-D2 site: "E2-D2 is a literature database comprised of technical references covering a diverse range of topics related to environmental effects of dredging and dredged material disposal projects. The database focuses on broad topics such as beneficial uses of dredged material, contaminated sediments, and effects of sediment resuspension and sedimentation on aquatic organisms and their habitats. Much of the technical literature pertaining to dredging and dredged material disposal is found in the "gray" literature, i.e., non-peer-reviewed federal or state agency publications, or proceedings of symposia and specialty conferences. Many other studies of dredging operations are documented in the form of unpublished contract reports frequently held in project files rather that libraries or archives."
