CONTAINMENT ISLANDS: A SOLUTION FOR PORTS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

This article describes containment islands as one response to a worldwide dredging crisis. These islands have been created to serve a range of purposes, such as waterfront nesting areas, wildlife management areas, port facilities, airports, and parks. These islands are as varied in their size and environmental benefits as are the existing and innovative technologies used to build them. Over 2,000 containment islands have been built in the United States to receive both clean and contaminated dredged material, and there are numerous similar islands worldwide.
