Disposal of Confined Dredged Material

Disposal of Confined Dredged Material

This course was developed to provide guidance on designing and managing dredged materials from the bottom of streams, rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. Confined disposal sites are engineered structures designed to provide required storage volume and to meet required effluent solid standards. The guidelines provided in this course can be used for designing, operating, and managing dredged material containment areas. The disposal areas should retain suspended solids during disposal operations and provide adequate storage volume for both short-term and long term disposal needs. Ultimately, the dredged materials must be managed in ways that are compatible with future land-use goals and ensure environmental protection.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty-five (35) questions to earn 7 PDH credit.
