Welcome to the Ocean Disposal Database

The Environmental Laboratory (EL) of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) maintains the Ocean Disposal Database for dredged material. This website provides open access to information for over 100 Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Sites (ODMDS) most of which include a description and a map, as well as a list of dredging projects that have used the sites to dispose of dredged sediments. This information is provided to support the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) district personnel and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) for monitoring and management activities at each ODMDS. Other interested parties are welcome to browse and download data as well.

The data dates back to 1976, and care has been taken to accurately present the data displayed at this website. However, if you find there may be an error please notify the database manager.
