Abstract: Various types of dredging plant are described; their capabilities and limitations are listed. The importance of selecting the most suitable disposal method for the job at hand is stressed. Present day emphasis on clean waters dictates that planning be redirected to studying alternate disposal methods to reduce pollutional aspect of some dredging projects. The trend is towards more positive containment of dredged materials to reduce repetitive redredging of material in the ship channels and to provide some control over water quality.
