Beneficial use of dredged sediment
Orwell Estuary (Suffolk)
This project was undertaken in tandem with the Trimley Foreshore recharge work on the opposite bank of the estuary. A total of around 15,000m3 of dredged gravel and silt was placed on site. These were retained using clay and gravel bunds. The work was done through amphibious excavations and placement of mud through rainbow disposal.
