Remediation projects can last for years, and meanwhile, environmental science and sediment management continue to advance. Gustavson et al. summarize some of the key challenges inherent in carrying out dredging projects and evaluating whether the remediation goals have been met. The authors discuss the advantages of adaptive management strategies, which can help researchers improve a project that is already under way and can lead to better assessments of the outcomes.
