Testing and Evaluating Dredged Material for Upland Beneficial Uses: A Regional Framework for the Great Lakes
This document offers a step-by-step guide to identifying upland beneficial use opportunities, evaluating suitability, and implementation using a risk-based approach. Eight different upland beneficial use scenarios are evaluated with tables comparing relevant state contaminant criteria.
The annotated bibliography serves as a companion document to the Regional Framework document. It includes all the references cited in the framework and many additional ones that might be useful in evaluating dredged material for beneficial uses.
