About the presentation:
Whether you are new to sediments or have years of experience, this presentation will have something for you.  At this presentation, we will discuss dredging and associated regulatory limits, current changes underway on state, and regional levels and touch upon local projects.  Sediment analysis differs from soil analysis and unique tests that can be used for evaluating sediments will be presented.  New methods and emerging areas of concern will be introduced.  Questions are welcome!
