Description:
Abstract:
This dataset represents Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Sites (ODMDS) areas designated by EPA for dredged material disposal under section 102 of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA). EPA designated sites are to be used for ocean disposal to the extent feasible.
Purpose:
This GIS dataset was created for purpose of describing the locations of ocean disposal sites (ODMDS) for the state of Florida so that these data can be considered with respect to other data on coastal resources and activities.
Supplemental_Information:
Most of the dredged material disposed in the ocean is disposed at ocean dumping sites specifically designated by EPA for dredged material disposal under section 102 of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA). EPA designated sites are to be used for ocean disposal to the extent feasible. All ocean dumping sites are required to have a site management and monitoring plan (SMMP) which can be found for each individual site at: . Appropriate management of ocean dumping sites is aimed at assuring that disposal activities will not unreasonably degrade or endanger human health, welfare, the marine environment or economic potentialities. Management of ocean dredged material disposal sites involves: 1. Regulating the times, the quantity, and the physical/chemical characteristics of dredged material that is dumped at the site; 2. Establishing disposal controls, conditions, and requirements to avoid and minimize potential impacts to the marine environment; and 3. Monitoring the site environs to verify that unanticipated or significant adverse effects are not occurring from past or continued use of the disposal site and that permit terms are met.
