From 1998 through 2004, the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) developed technical information in support of the Massachusetts Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP). The goal of the DMMP was to identify management solutions for dredged materials to facilitate channel dredging and port development while minimizing impacts to marine and cultural resources. Under the DMMP, CZM developed Environmental Impact Reports (EIR) and other documents to address state regulatory and management issues. A major component of the EIRs is a description of marine and cultural resources that may be impacted by dredged material disposal.

A bibliography of DMMP publications organized alphabetically by year is listed below.
