This study inquires into the feasibility and practicality of pumping dredge spoil long distances. The purpose of the proposed operation is to deliver dredge spoil by pipeline to locations far removed from its origin. The study concludes that transport of dredged spoil by pipeline over long distances is feasible technologically and will cost about 0.01cu. yd. for each mile the spoil is transported. It is acknowledged that this transport cost exceeds the cost of transport of dredge spoil by waterborne cargo carrier which is studied in Sub Study No. 3. Therefore, the study concludes that the best promise for utilizing the discussed technique would be in connection with a large capacity inland source which would be enhanced by the dredged spoil.
