Documentation of EWN Successes: Filling the Beneficial Use Gap (18-06)

Project Information

Dredged materials can be used to improve environmental outcomes while maximizing navigation benefits. Few studies document mid- to long-term project benefits and USACE success stories remain poorly advertised. The purpose of the work unit is to “fill the gap” between recently restored systems and their mature counterparts, providing a framework to develop restoration trajectory curves allowing for extrapolation of EWN benefits throughout a projects lifespan.
