Part of: Dredging and Dredged Material Disposal


Systematic management of confined dredged material disposal sites is becoming increasingly necessary as competition for land use intensifies in regions in which most dredging projects are located. Long-term management of either single or multiple disposal sites entails determination of the storage capacity required to contain the sediments to be dredged over a period of years. Techniques for constructive management of confined disposal sites have been developed at the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station.
