The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Portland District Regulatory team recently toured the Dredge Oregon to learn about dredging on the Columbia River Federal Navigation Channel (CR FNC).

During the visit, the team also learned about the beneficial re-use of dredged materials on Rice Island, USACE said in its announcement.

The purpose of the Columbia River Federal Navigation Channel Operations and Maintenance program is to provide a continuous, safe, reliable commercial shipping channel by periodically removing unsafe and restricting shoals.

In order to maintain the channel at its authorized depth, material from maintenance dredging is placed in-water outside of the channel or within the dredged material placement network consisting of upland and/or beach nourishment/shoreline placement sites and supporting sumps (in-water holding basins created outside the main channel for temporary material storage before it is pumped to adjacent upland sites).

Management of dredged material is dependent on geographic and temporal variability of shoal development within the CR FNC, and dredged material placement is implemented strategically throughout the system to balance placement and dredging needs along the CR FNC.

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.
