Abstract:

The Bureau of Ports and Harbors, Ministry of Transport, is engaged in a number of sea bottom management operations. These operations consist of the prevention of harbor pollution, implemented primarily by dredging bottom sediments, and a study of sea bottom sediment clarification designed to eliminate organic sediment in bays and inland seas. In implementing these projects, one very significant problem that must be solved is disposal of the dredged material. Difficulties are also encountered in disposal of the material produced from the improvement works of port facilities, fairways, and anchorages. These difficulties occasionally block the implementation of such projects. This paper describes examples of the disposal of, or use of, certain types of dredged material and organic sediment for beach reclamation.
