A density of 1100kg/m3). Figure 9: "RAT" Output for Revised Dewatering Velocity HESK 47 The secondary analysis used 6x10~5 m/s as the dewatering velocity with all other parameters remaining constant. The output from the "RAT" with this revised input parameter is shown in Figure 9. Comparison of Figures 6 and 9 clearly demonstrates a significant reduction in the maximum transport distance achievable with the assumed larger material particle size / increased dewatering velocity. The maximum transport distance for the larger particle size material is now in the region of 850m (compared to the initial case of approximately 1200m).

The MOU (along with the underpinning guidance) provides a protocol for planning and undertaking dredging operations so that adverse environmental impact is minimised and the long term sustainability of the water system is not compromised and provides that the regulatory approach to the operations is clearly understood. : a) discharge from a split-hopper barge b) cutter-suction dredging where dredgings are sucked up and discharged downstream via a pipe or discharged from a split hopper barge. c) use of grabs and backhoe to move sediment Current Concerns with regard to Regulation As discussed above, the UK legislation controlling waste disposal at landfill is biased towards the regulation of commercial waste disposal facilities.

000 m3 was commissioned in 1994 to Baggerwerken Decloedt. 000 m3 was at that time by far the biggest hopper dredger ever built. It was built for big land reclamation projects where a large volume of sand had to be dredged and long sailing distances were required. The large hopper volume decreased the cost per cubic meter sand dredged, as larger volumes were moved at a similar cost. The technical know-how for the dredging installation on board of the PEARL RIVER was based on the dredging installation of the ANTIGOON that was built in 1989.
