Abstract: Abstract: Contaminated marine sediments exist in many US waterways. Dredging is often a convenient and economical method of safely removing these sediments. However, significant concern exists over the potential environmental effects resulting from the localized sediment resuspension and contaminant release that may occur during the removal operation. This report synopsizes hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical dredging innovations and discusses their application to dredging of contaminated sediments.
