Port of Cleveland Presents Sediment Management Strategy

The Port of Cleveland has developed and implemented a plan to manage the sediments annually dredged from the 5.9 mile shipping channel on the Cuyahoga River.

According to the port, the plan is made to ensure that the shipping channel is maintained at an adequate depth needed for commercial shipping traffic.

The plan relies on harnessing natural physical properties of water, sediments, and energy-sediment choreography.

The Port’s strategy includes:

  • Managing the operation of the confined disposal facility (CDF);
  • Increasing capacity of the CDF through an efficient and responsible method of delivery and placement of sediments;
  • Implementing techniques to harvest and use the cleaner sediments for beneficial purposes, and;
  • Reducing dredging requirements by intercepting bed load sediments (coarse sands and small gravel) as they move downstream before they enter and settle in the ship channel.

The Port’s plan extends the life of the CDF to 47 years in an effort to avoid the exorbitant cost of a new CDF.

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
