Beneficial Use of Dredged Sediments
« All Publications

Several contaminated sediment sites in the New York and New Jersey region are scheduled to undergo dredging-based remediation over the next 10 years.

The end use of the dredged material is typically placement in a landfill, often times in locations across the U.S. and Canada, and transported by rail. Finding means of beneficially using the dredged sediment will improve the sustainability of the remediation efforts. Beneficial uses of dredged sediment was presented along with an example quantitative assessment of sustainability benefits associated with such applications.
