Could dredging expose heavy metals in the sediment, thus impacting water quality or wildlife?

One component of the dredging protocol is to evaluate and conduct sampling of the material that is to be dredged.  This has been done extensively as part of the Corpus Christi 54’ Channel Improvement Project, and the sediments in the Ship Channel have consistently proven not to pose a threat of contamination.
