Beneficial use of dredged material to restore Chesapeake Bay wetlands

A Mid-Chesapeake Bay Marshlands Restoration project is being developed by the Integration and Application Network, the US Army Corps of Engineers, Maryland Port Administration, US Fish & Wildlife Service, and Maryland Department of Natural Resources. This newsletter discusses the ecological, economic, and engineering issues associated with using dredged material to restore the eroding marshes of the mid-Chesapeake Bay. The purpose of this effort is to develop a study plan that will evaluate the key ecological, economic, and engineering issues associated with a large scale marsh restoration project in Dorchester County.
