A Guide to Engineering with Nature for Native Plant Community Development on Dredge Material Placement Areas

This EWN Action Project will provide guidance highlighting the use of native plant communities as vegetative treatments providing effective, low cost solutions, to stabilize dredged material placement areas and confined disposal facilities while providing engineering and environmental benefits. Two workshops will be held to develop case studies for the purpose of demonstrating planting techniques with native plant communities that will go into natural succession in the future.
