Description: Technical Note
Purpose: This Dredging Operations and Technical Support (DOTS) Program technical note presents a new weir design utilized by the USACE Jacksonville District. The new design is less expensive, safer, and more easily constructed. It also has inherent redundancies and a longer life cycle. The carrier water from the dredged material slurry (water plus dredged solids) that is pumped into a DMMA during dredging must be decanted. The volume of carrier water is several times greater than the amount of dredged solids remaining within the site; thus, if the weir system has issues, the entire project is at serious risk (Fowler et al. 1999).
