Traditionally, uncontaminated sediment was disposed of in open water while contaminated sediment was more often landfilled or placed in confined disposal facilities (CDFs). The economic element of sustainability has increased emphasis on green and sustainable environmental solutions, which has reduced the desirability and cost of trucking materials over large distances to a landfill. Also, most existing CDFs are full or nearly so, thereby presenting additional challenges for disposal of dredged sediment. Many lessons can be learned from the use of alternate disposal approaches at smaller sites. Multiple examples are presented of strategies for minimization of dredged quantities, reuse of dredged sediment, and on-site consolidation of dredged sediment.
