Abstract:

Productive use of dredged material and effective disposal area management have been objectives of studies by the Dredged Material Research Program DMRP. The experimental dewatering program at the Upper Polecat Bay disposal site in Mobile, Alabama a cooperative effort of the DMRP and the Mobile District produced large volumes of stable fine-grained material that is being used to raise the perimeter dikes around the disposal site. The combination of borrow mining and dike raising, shown in the above photo and described in the following article, will provide approximately one million cubic metres of additional storage at a cost-effective price of approximately 0.17 per cubic metre of storage gained.
