Dredged material

Protecting our nation’s maritime and environmental future.

In order to keep our nation’s ports open for shipping, the United States Army Corp of Engineers estimates that hundreds of millions of cubic yards of dredged material needs to be excavated each year from waterways across the country. This dredge material, an aggregate of sediment accumulated at the bottom of a waterway, must be removed in order to provide fifty foot deep channels required for large ocean-going shipping vessels. It is time now more than ever, to provide treatment and beneficial reuse solutions for earthen material such as dredge and avoid traditional landfill disposal as it is critical to our nation’s maritime and environmental future.

Clean Earth's processed dredged material has been transformed into engineered structural fill and employed in wide variety of beneficial reuses including mine reclamation, landfill capping, golf course contouring, and the redevelopment of brownfield sites.
