Dredged Material Management

Kick-starting the Regional Sediment Management Plan and solving the looming dredge crisis

Upland placement capacity for non-HARS suitable dredged material is becoming increasingly limited and maritime entities face escalating costs to dredge. This panel focused on the long overdue need to put the Regional Sediment Management Plan into place and the overwhelming need to foster bi-state collaboration. The aim was creating a solution to reduce dredging costs and beneficially use dredged sediments to obtain harbor restoration goals and maximize opportunities for transporting goods by water.
