Beneficial Use Of Dredged Material (BUDM)

About This Tool

BUDM is an ERDC website dedicated to increasing the public awareness of using dredged material as a valuable resource. Beneficial use of dredged material has become a viable alternative to traditional “dredge and dispose” methods for many projects. Environmental, economic, social, and other benefits can be derived from the productive use of dredged material. Dredged material is increasingly used beneficially for a greater variety of projects and purposes.
