Great Lakes Dredging Team
Please visit the Great Lakes Dredging Team website at http://greatlakesdredging.net/
Dredging and the management of dredged material have been the focus of considerable research, evaluation, and coordination among state and federal agencies responsible for these activities on the Great Lakes.
Over the years, several interagency and international committees and working groups have been formed to work with the states to coordinate dredging and dredged material management activities on the Great Lakes, resolve technical and policy issues, and develop testing and interpretation guidance. The Great Lakes Dredging Team (GLDT) was the first regional dredging team established and became operational in 1994. The GLDT acts as a forum for both governmental and non-governmental Great Lakes dredging interests and facilitates promotes timely, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable dredging operations of U.S. harbors and channels throughout the Great Lakes, connecting channels and tributaries.
Members of the GLDT work on issues ranging from dredged material management to research and technologies.
The GLDT prepares reports and provides information to its members on dredging and dredging-related activities. The GLDT has produced reports on the beneficial use of dredged materials, upland testing, dredging windows, a review of the decision-making process for dredging and a report on the importance of dredging to the Great Lakes.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides funding to support the work of the Great Lakes Dredging Team.
