The Dredged Material Management Program
The Dredged Material Management Program (DMMP) is managed by committees that account for the port’s dredging needs through a rolling 20-year plan. The program is rooted in the Dredged Material Management Act of 2001 and benefits from the broad participation of citizens, scientific experts, regulatory agencies, and business partners.
The DMMP uses a mix of strategies for managing dredged material , including wetland restoration, island recreation, upland placement, construction of carefully engineered containment facilities, and the innovative reuse of dredged material.
