Abstract:

Dredging may be undertaken to Provide a minimum ship-channel depth of 75 feet at mean low tide Provide a minimum depth of 75 feet at mean low tide in other zones of ship operation, to accommodate berthing and turning and Prepare a foundation on which to construct offshore islands and associated shoreside structures. The dredging of ship channels and other operating zones requires either a periodic or a continuing program of maintenance dredging. The extent of maintenance dredging depends on the rate of sediment redeposited by current action on already dredged areas. Dredging to prepare a foundation is a one-time action, that does not require subsequent dredging for maintenance purposes. Author
