About this book

Inland dredging operations cost millions of pounds every year in the UK. But considerable cost savings could be achieved simply by improving operational effectiveness and efficiency. This publication will help planners and operators to achieve efficient and environmentally friendly solutions to dredging problems. It includes guidance on good practice for dredging and sediment treatment techniques, and on the management of dredging operations. It defines an appropriate approach to project evaluation, task definition and option selection; considers measurement techniques, contractual relationships and relevant health and safety issues; and outlines further research needs. Together with CIRIA Report 157, Guidance on the disposal of dredged material to land, this report ensures a framework is established for dredging operations to be undertaken cost-effectively and within the law.
