EVALUATION OF PROCESSES FOR SILT AND CLAY HANDLING

Some processes are discussed for the handling of dredged materials, as will as how these processes might be applied in the handling of silts and clays remaining after sand and gravel processing. Emphasis has been placed on the technical aspects and design rationale for applying these processes as part of overall solids and liquid management systems. The paper which is particularly useful to designers of settling basins, provides detailed discussion of the various aspects of dredge removal of silt, the use of coagulants, and of alternative processes and equipment and the limitations and possible applications.
