Comprehensive analysis of migration pathways (CAMP) : contaminant migration pathways at confined dredged material disposal facilities by James M Brannon( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A confined disposal facility (CDF) is a diked enclosure having either permeable or low-permeable walls that are used to retain dredged material solids. There are two types of CDFs are located within the influence of normal tidal or other water fluctuations. This report identifies and documents key contaminant mobility processes and pathways operative in CDFs under varying operational and environmental conditions. It also summarizes what is known about contaminant migration, cycling, and mobilization pathways, provides information on models and assessment techniques, and identifies areas for which insufficient information is available. The present information does not permit evaluations of the relative significance of contaminant migration pathways from a CDF. Pathways involving movement of large masses of water, such as CDF effluent, leaching through permeable dikes, or leaching through the dredged material, have the greatest potential for moving significant quantities of contaminants out of the CDF. Pathways such as volatilization may also result in movement of substantial amounts of volatile organic contaminants from CDFs. The relative importance of contaminant cycling and mobilization pathways to net mass balance has not been determined, but available information on each of the contaminant migration, cycling, and mobilization pathways is summarized in the report. Where possible, methods have been provided for making rough estimates of contaminant mass movement via pathways. (TTL)

Program documentation and user's guide : PCDDF89, primary consolidation and desiccation of dredged fill by Timothy D Stark( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The US Army Corps of Engineers has developed a computer program to model consolidation and desiccation that occurs in confined dredged material placement sites; the program is entitled Primary Consolidation and Desiccation of Dredged Fill (PCDDF). The program is equally applicable to other soft, fine grained deposits. Although originally written for operation on a mainframe computer, the program has been modified to run on an IBM (or compatible) microcomputer with a math coprocessor. It has recently been extensively revised and modified into a more user friendly version that is referred to as PCDDF89. This report contains a brief description of the mathematical model used in PCDDF89 and an extensive user's guide. PCDDF89 simulates the consolidation and desiccation processes in fine grained soils using the finite strain theory of consolidation and an empirical desiccation model. Settlement is calculated for each compressible layer within the area, and a cumulative settlement for all dredged fill and compressible foundation layers is determined. Additional layers of dredged fill can be added at any time. A total of 25 types of dredged fill and 25 foundation layers can be analyzed in one simulation

Overview of processes affecting contaminant release from confined disposal facilities by James Lenial Martin( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confined disposal facilities (CDFs) are widely used for the disposal of dredged material from Corps of Engineers maintenance dredging projects along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and waterways and harbors in the Great Lakes. CDFs are a less common disposal alternative along the Pacific coast and inland river systems. When contaminated dredged material is placed in the CDF, there is a potential for contaminant mobilization and release from the CDF by a variety of physical, chemical, and biological processes. This report provides an overview of the processes affecting mobilization and release of contaminants from CDFs and the potential applicability of multimedia models for prediction of contaminant release. Processes affecting release from in-water CDFs are emphasized, although many of the processes discussed are applicable to nearshore and upland CDFs. Processes affecting contaminant release are complex, involving a variety of chemicals and operational and design considerations. Many of the important processes are reasonably well known. Laboratory column settling and elutriate techniques have been developed to estimate solids and contaminant concentration in water directly released during hydraulic disposal operations. Predictive techniques for other processes are not as available

Guidelines for vegetative erosion control on wave-impacted coastal dredged material sites by Paul L Knutson( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides guidelines for the evaluation of vegetative stabilization alternatives for dredged material disposal areas using salt marsh wetland plants. The guidelines provide a methodology for classifying dredged material shorelines with respect to wave energy (low, moderate, or high energy sites) and specify a vegetative stabilization strategy (standard planting techniques, root-anchored techniques, or wave protection structures) for each energy regime. Such guidelines provide dredged material planners and operations personnel the means to use dredged material for combined beneficial uses of wetlands creation, habitat development, and erosion control. The report also presents two case studies of salt marsh creation on dredged material sites located in North Carolina along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway and in Texas along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway near Galveston. These studies provide guidelines for creating salt marsh on moderate- to high-energy sites exposed to both ship and wind generated waves
