Dredged material management is a fact of life in the Monmouth/Ocean County region. The local economy and quality of life depends heavily on the marine trade industry, the counties role as a tourism destination, the recreational and commercial boating and fishing that takes place along the bi-county coastline, and, in the maintenance of state navigation channels. The goal of efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally beneficial dredged material management requires a federal, state, and local partnership. Over eighty attendees gathered to listen to an expert panel of state and federal officials discuss factual information, dredged material management strategies, funding sources, planning, beneficial use, and marketing aspects of dredging and dredged material management.

MODC, NJDOT/OMR and the Marine Trades Association of New Jersey planned "Permitting 101”, an intensive education and awareness “permitting” how-to session, which took place on April 6, 2004.
