The Central Dredging Association (CEDA) is gearing up for another interesting event titled ‘Measures to manage the effects of dredging projects’ to be held on Thursday 5th May in Westminster, London.
Dredging activities can have significant effects on the marine environment. These effects can occur in many ways, including direct loss of habitat, changes in coastal processes, changes in sediment composition, increased suspended sediments, and release of contaminants.
It is therefore essential to identify appropriate management measures to ensure the protection of the marine environment.
With this in mind, the seminar will discuss the latest approaches and technologies for managing the effects of dredging activities, using real case studies from around the world.
Bill Gush, Regional Director of the Land & Water Group, is one of the speakers at the event, where starting at 2 p.m. he will share his thoughts on how to mitigate measures relating to the impacts of inland dredging.
Also speaking at the event were Rachel White, Director of Port and Coastal Solutions; and Jamie Gardiner, chair of the CEDA UK committee.
