Forth Dredging Event Starts This Week
The Forth Estuary Forum will host an information meeting about ‘Sedimentation and Dredging’ on Thursday, 9th July, from 6.30pm-9.30pm, at Carnegie Conference Center in Dunfermline.
The Forum is a voluntary partnership of organisations around the Forth with an interest in the wellbeing of the Forth and its coastal communities.
Members of the Forum meet to share information and discuss matters affecting the Forth and to develop projects which benefit the Forth. The Forum boundaries are approximately from the tidal limit at Stirling to a line drawn from Fife Ness to Dunbar including the Isle of May.
The meeting will include presentations on:
- the process of sedimentation, with reference to the Forth Estuary;
- methods of dredging;
- experiences of small harbors using dredging contractors;
- guidance on the marine licence process.
