Course Description

078-Dredging and the Environment - Part 2 (Dredging of Contaminated Sediments)

This is Part Two multi-part course on Dredging that examines dredging as it relates to various types of environmental projects. This Course covers Dredging of Contaminated Sediments, which examines basic design concepts as well as the Management/Constructability ("how-to") aspect of dredging as it relates to various types of environmental waterway restoration projects. If the reader is not already familiar with the fundamentals of dredging, we suggest a review of our course titled "Dredging and the Environment Part One", also available on this site, before launching into this course, as there are a number of important terms and subjects covered in Part 1 that will be applied in this course, and without an basic understanding of the material covered in Part One the reader may not get the full benefit of this course. Subjects that will be covered in this Part 2 course are:"

  • Historical Overview
  • Nature and Identification of Contaminated Sediments
  • Sampling and Site Investigation
  • Survey
  • Sediment Sampling
  • Quality Control
  • Design Procedures and Precautions in Waterway Remediation
  • Design Overview
  • Bottom Graded Finish — what to expect
  • Dredging Accuracy
  • Side Slopes

This course is recommended as an introduction for the individual that is interested in the overall aspects of how the Dredging process can be used as an environmental restoration tool. The course material is suggested for the designer, permitting specialist or regulator; it is intended to help broaden the understanding of this technology. It is also intended to be very practical in nature, and focused on how the dredging process can work best in the restoration of waterways. It will also cover many of the dos and don'ts of dredging and project management — as well as what can and cannot be expected and accomplished using today's available technology.

Dredging part 2 course was informative, but could have contained more detailed information on settling tests and inmpacts on sizing disposal areas, flocculant, thickener, belt filter and cyclone use, upland disposal area sizing, dam design. effluent system design and permitting issues.
