Abstract:

MOVE OUT OF THE WAY OF TRAFFIC. Hopper dredges move dredged material out of the channel and redeposit it somewhere else in the waterway. There is no beneficial use of the dredged material, unless it is handled again at additional cost to get it out of the waterway. Hopper dredges can use direct pump-out to place material in adjacent marsh but have never been used for beneficial use projects at Head of Passes mobility for safe passage of traffic and can economically pump dredged material. In The first article under this headline presented an introductory overview of a project about the flexible-discharge dustpan dredge demonstration conducted on the lower Mississippi River during June 5-13, 2002. Part 2 reports on the research aspects of this project.
