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.

Characteristics of Processed Dredged Material
Soil like in transit
Functions as select fill
Good structural strength
Safe in upland environment - meets existing regulations for placement
Easily handled with standard construction equipment
Has Value - numerous beneficial reuses
Candidates for Processed Dredged Material
Increase visibility from highways
Projects requiring a large amount of fill for grading
General construction fill (high strength material)
Valley fills, former strip pits or quarries
Brownfield remediation and capping (redevelopment)
Raise elevation due to floodplain concerns/compliance
Preload/Surcharge to consolidate unsuitable subsurface
Typically desirable versus pilings or dynamic compaction
Landfill Closure - For redevelopment of pad sites and recreational opportunities (golf courses)
