DREDGING CONTAINMENT AREAS AS SEDIMENTATION BASINS

The solids retention capability of eleven disposal areas was determined on the basis of the suspended solids concentration in the influent slurry and the effluent waters. The performance of containment areas as sedimentation basins is strongly correlated with the hydraulic efficiency of the area. Sedimentation theories for estimating the performance of the dredgings containment areas were studied.
