About This Publication

Engineering With Nature proudly co-hosted the inaugural Beneficial Use of Dredged Material Workshop, which aimed to address challenges hindering increased beneficial use (BU) of dredged material within the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The workshop brought together representatives from USACE divisions, districts, and research programs. Key topics of discussion included the current state of BU practices, success stories, regulatory challenges, policy issues, technical logistics, stakeholder engagement, and opportunities for expanding innovative BU applications. The proceedings document summarizes the valuable input shared on each of these topics and includes a full list of the top BU experts in attendance. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP), Dredging Operations and Environmental Research (DOER), and Regional Sediment Management (RSM).
