Abstract

Throughout the Great Lakes, about four million cubic yards of sediments are dredged annually to maintain navigation in channels and harbors for commercial, military and recreational users, and as part of environmental projects. CDF design criteria based on contaminant level and partitioning potential of sediments is presented. CDF designs reflect the level of isolation which the sediments under consideration warrant. In this paper the application of geosynthetic components for limiting contaminant pathways in the CDF containment basin and final closure arc discussed.

Design of Contaminated Dredged Fills Utilizing Geosynthetics

St. Louis, Missouri

Throughout the Great Lakes, about four million cubic yards of sediments are dredged annually to maintain navigation in channels and harbors for commercial, military and recreational users, and as part of environmental projects. CDF design criteria based on contaminant level and partitioning potential of sediments is presented. CDF designs reflect the level of isolation which the sediments under consideration warrant. In this paper the application of geosynthetic components for limiting contaminant pathways in the CDF containment basin and final closure arc discussed.
