Ocean Disposal Sites in Region 9

There are 12 EPA-designated ocean disposal sites for dredged material in Region 9: six along the California coast, five around the Hawaiian Islands, and the newly-established site west of Guam. Each site is managed according to a Site Management and Monitoring Plan (SMMP). EPA also manages one ocean disposal site for fish processor waste in American Samoa.
