Abstract : This project was intended to demonstrate separation of military munitions from dredging material on a representative dredge while minimizing the impact on dredging production rates and/or operations and applying appropriate safety precautions. Specifically, to identify an appropriate technology that would provide in-situ separation of entrained military munitions from dredge material in such a way as to reduce the need for dredge slurry post-dredging separation efforts in a feasible and cost efficient manner. During the first year of this effort (Phase I), this project surveyed the domestic and international dredging community to determine if technology was available to accomplish this task.
