Abstract:

Use of dewatered fine-grained dredged material for large-scale perimeter dike raising was evaluated by a cooperative field demonstration between the U.S. Army Engineer District, Mobile, and the Dredged Material Research Program DMRP Disposal Operations Project DOP and Productive Uses Projects. It is recommended that Corps of Engineers field elements and other interested agencies seriously consider the use of dewatered fine-grained dredged material for large-scale perimeter dike-raising activities, following the construction procedures described and evaluated in the report. Such construction may be extremely cost effective at remote locations where offsite borrow is particularly expensive.
