Maintenance dredging projects have ranged from clean sediment mining, maintenance dredging and new construction dredging to complex environmental remediation projects with varying levels of contamination.

Also, disposal options have ranged from in-water dumping utilizing split hull barges or dump scows, upland placement utilizing pumps, offload to conveyors and off-road haul trucks to upriver transport on sealed barges, where the material is offloaded to trucks for transport to upland landfills.
