Expanding a port, deepening a navigation channel or creating new land for development, introduces changes to our physical, social, economic and political environment. Changes may result from events during the construction process, or relate to the nature of the completed structure. Changes can be positive or negative, short-term or long-term, and may affect the immediate vicinity of the project or a larger geographical area. Predicting and assessing all possible effects of a planned dredging activity in a scientifically-sound and reliable manner is essential, so that appropriate control measures can be taken to avoid or mitigate unwelcome impacts. This book provides guidance for a complete holistic environmental evaluation procedure and for the design and implementation of environmental control measures. The book is of particular interest to engineers, government agencies and port authorities, as well as civil engineering consultants and contractors involved in planning and designing dredging, maritime infrastructure and fluvial projects.

Review:

The editor and contributors for "Environmental Aspects of Dredging" provide an excellent presentation of the effects that dredging has on the environment. The environmental effects of different dredging equipment, the need for predredging investigations, the necessity of monitoring environmental effects of the dredging, and the need to adapt dredging procedures based on monitoring results are described. The importance of reusing dredged material is emphasized to benefit the environment. The book is well written and a valuable reference for engineering and scientific consultants, regulators, dredging contractors, and stakeholders.

--Robert E. Randall, PhD, PE. Professor of Ocean Engineering. Texas A&M University

 

"The worldwide dredging industry would be well advised to issue a copy of this book to every major media outlet and every marine green NGO on the planet. It could help to reverse some very expensive misconceptions." Ausmarine Magazine, June 2009
