Abstract

The Dredging Research Program (DRP) was a seven-year (1988-1994) major research and development program that addressed problem areas related to the physical, operational, and managerial aspects of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' dredging mission. The cost for the DRP in 1994 dollars was $44,000,000. In 1993, a study was implemented that measured the economic benefits derived from actual or anticipated use of DRP products. The results of this study indicated that there is a 0.90 probability that the DRP will provide benefits of at least $100,586,000 (1994 dollars) from 1994 through 1998 (Griffis 1994).
