CAIT Webinar Series: Beneficial Use of Dredged Materials for Coastal Resilience

  • July 13, 2020
  • 3:00 pm–4:00 pm

Dredged material for coastal projects is one tool that can and should be incorporated into larger structural and non-structural coastal resilience efforts in the short and long-term. There has long been a stigma surrounding dredged material and that all of it is contaminated and therefore not appropriate for re-use.  As many recent coastal projects will demonstrate, this idea is not entirely accurate – many channels within New Jersey’s state and federal navigation system have been identified as containing sediment suitable for various uses, including wetland restoration through “thin-layer” placement and dune and beach restoration.  Through beneficially using dredged material for non-structural and nature-based components of coastal projects to reduce vulnerabilities to storms and sea-level rise, there is the dual benefit of maintaining safe and navigable waterways in the state while increasing the resilience of our coastal communities.

This free webinar will analyze opportunities, barriers, and case studies, as well as highlight successes related to the beneficial use of dredged materials for coastal resilience.

Webinar Outcomes:

  • Increase understanding of uses of dredged materials for coastal resilience
  • Discuss important case studies
  • Analyze barriers and opportunities for future projects
