Strategic Placement of Sediment for Engineering and Environmental Benefit

Project Information

Strategic placement of dredged sediment is the practice of cost-effectively placing sediment at dispersive sites so that natural forces can transport the sediment toward desired receptors. The sediment is thus maintained beneficially in the regional system. The objective of this research effort is to provide guidance for strategic placement options that benefit navigation, flood risk management, and environmental resource missions of the Corps. Products will outline the synergy between strategically placed sediments and benefits to nearby receptors.
