|Abstract:||Results of the geology, physical oceanography, water chemistry and biological baseline investigations of the proposed dredge spoil disposal site off Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Hawaii, have yielded no evidence to suggest that dumping of dredge spoil will create significant adverse effects on the environment. Results obtained during these investigations have shown that the proposed site is suitable as a permanent dredge spoil disposal site. Further confirmation of this conclusion will be obtained through the proposed monitoring activities conducted during actual disposal operations (phase B). The general circulation and current patterns in the disposal area lead to the further recommendation that actual dumping take place in the southeast corner of the disposal area, moving from east to west.|
