Solent project considers what to do with dredged sediment

By [email protected] - 21st December 2017 - 15:57

Recognising that local stakeholders are keen to use more of the sediment that is dredged in the Solent beneficially, ABPmer has been commissioned by the Solent Forum to explore opportunities for doing this in the region. Drawing on lessons learned from implemented beneficial use projects, ABPmerâs project team is developing a set of high-level criteria to assess sites where dredged sediment could be used. The project will also develop a network of interested parties and stakeholders from across the region as well as nationally to understand the opportunities and barriers to sediment re-use. The outputs from this initial scoping exercise will identify a beneficial use site that the Solent Forum and its partners can consider further.
