Minimum Sample Collection Requirements

When applying for a permit, the proponent is asked to submit an estimate of the total volume (in cubic metres) of the material that will be dredged for the purposes of disposal at sea. These volume estimates will be used in determining the total number of samples that will be required within each dredging unit, in preparing the Disposal at Sea permit, and for calculating monitoring fees.
