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.​
