UK: “Environmental Aspects of Dredging” Starts Next Week

Environmental Aspects of Dredging

HR Wallingford, Central Dredging Association (CEDA) and International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) scheduled their training course named “Environmental Aspects of Dredging” for 18-19 June 2014, in Howbery Park, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, UK.

This two day training course will cover the scope and importance of the environmental aspects of dredging projects, the management of dredged material and the typical legislative conditions and controls imposed by international conventions and regional agencies.

Topics that will be covered include:

– an overview of the “players” who may become involved in dredging projects and their perspectives;

– main types of dredging equipment, their environmental effects and possible mitigation measures;

– pre-dredging site investigations, monitoring and dredged material management;

– workshops where participants are split into small groups to find solutions for dredging projects closely resembling real-life dredging situations.
