Report Title : Review of Dredging Practice in the Netherlands (1992), 112 p. (Reprinted, 1995)

Author : S.T. Gilbert & P.W.T. To


To improve and develop knowledge of dredging and related issues, a duty visit was arranged for GEO staff to visit the Netherlands to examine different aspects of Dutch dredging practice and in particular to focus on the major dredging issues relevant to Hong Kong in the next ten to fifteen years. The programme of the duty visit consisted of visits to major maintenance and capital dredging operations, and meetings with representatives from the Dutch Government Departments responsible for dredging works, dredging contractors, consulting engineers and research institutions closely related with the dredging industry.

This report, based on the duty visit, reviews the status of the dredging industry in the Netherlands and Belgium, dredging methods, contracts and research, methods of transportation and reclamation, and the removal, treatment and disposal of contaminated materials.
