Summary: The letter covers the regulatory, planning and construction requirements for disposal of dredged material from the Mobile Bay navigation channel to open bay thin layer disposal areas that were once historic disposal areas. The placement of material is expected to have no adverse environmental impacts and is expected to beneficially add sediment into the natural sediment transport system.
