This course provides guidance and evaluation of dredged material disposal and disposal alternatives. While selection of dredging equipment is important for economic dredging, the selection of a disposal alternative is of equal or greater importance in determining viability of the project especially from an environmental standpoint. The design, operation and maintenance, management and productive use of confined dredged material disposal areas are presented. The course will enable the student to understand the procedures and importance of data gathering, sediment characterization and disposal site foundation conditions involved in the design of containment areas, retention dikes and storage capacity estimates.
The course is based on Engineer Manual EM 1110-2-5025 US Army Corps of Engineers, Dredging and Dredged Material Disposal, chapters 1 and 4. A multiple-choice quiz is included at the end of the course to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
