US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Headquarters released Implementation Guidance this month for WRDA (Water Resources Development Act) 2016. In it includes Guidance for Section 1122 (Beneficial Use of Dredged Material, Special Rule and Disposal at Non-Federal Cost), which BPC and other key organizations helped to develop. We continue to advocate at the highest level for San Francisco Bay to be one of the ten sites for a pilot project in the Beneficial Use of Dredged Material pilot program required by the Act. BPC has recently met with the key organizations in response to the issuance of the Guidance and will continue to monitor implementation and engage as needed.
