Thin-Layer Placement of Dredged Material

Thin Layer Placement broadly encompasses the purposeful placement of sediment or dredged material in a manner that produces a specific disposal layer thickness or ground surface elevation necessary to achieving the overall project objectives. In thin layer placement projects, disposal layer thickness typically ranges from a few centimeters to some fraction of a meter, depending upon the variation in ground surface or water levels at the site, and the functional objectives the placement is intended to achieve.
