About This Publication

This technical note (TN) is the second in a series about using native plant communities to enhance Dredge Material Placement Areas (DMPAs) and Confined Disposal Facilities (CDFs). Project goals include the following: 1) introducing the dredging community to the benefits associated with native plant communities, and 2) demonstrating how targeted vegetation establishment can enhance DMPA and CDF management to improve engineering and environmental outcomes.
