    POTENTIAL EFFECTS OF DREDGING THE SOUTH FORK OBION RIVER ON GROUND-WATER LEVELS NEAR SIDONIA, WEAKLEY COUNTY, TENNESSEE By Patrick Tucci and Gregg E. Hileman.

These resuspended sediments are an often cited concern used to justify restrictions applied to dredging schedules in many areas of the USA. One example of a temporal restriction, commonly referred to as an environmental window, involves dredging schedules in the James River, Virginia, because of Cited by:

One Park Plaza, .   The river went brown because of all the sediment which was stirred up by the dredging. The water will clear as the sediment settles. Rivers which contain contaminants on the bottom can be negatively impacted by dredging. The contaminants, which were lying dormant, are stirred up and set loose by the dredging action.

Effects of Suction Dredging on Streams: a Review and an Evaluation Strategy By Bret C. Harvey and Thomas E. Lisle ABSTRACT Suction dredging for gold in river channels is a small-scale mining practice whereby streambed material is sucked up a pipe, passed over a sluice box to sort out the gold, and discarded as tail- ings over another area of Size: KB.

Water density and velocity are major factors, as is the bottom bathymetry. ł The type of material. Four sediment types included are gravel, sand, silt, and clay.

In addition, the clumping of cohesive sediments (silt and clay) is a major factor. Dredging operations will almost always resuspend sediments and increase turbidity, but the level of resuspension and associated impacts depends on the physical and chemical characteristics of the sediment, as well as the site conditions, type of equipment, and dredging method.

Some fishing gears cause the disturbance or destruction of seafloor habitat. Indirect effects are the downstream consequences of a direct effect.

Reductions in the total biomass of target fish, along with the direct effects noted above, could be expected to affect predators, prey, competitors of a. Capital dredging may also be an important aspect in the design of a new port if access channels or water deepening of a basin are required for the first time.

Maintenance dredging is essential to keep certain access channels, fishing port basins and canals subject to high sedimentation open to Size: 1MB. Negative impact of unplanned dredging include changes in physical and chemical component of the river water and resultant deleterious effect on surrounding flora and fauna, a filthy environment w.

However, during extreme events, perhaps upwards of the 1 in 5 year frequency, dredging is ineffective for flood defence purposes because even a river that has twice the capacity than it would naturally cannot contain a high magnitude flow; the capacity of the river floodplain is far greater than the capacity of the river channel.

So dredging has a relatively minor effect on the frequency of big flood. Sediment moves from one place to another through the process of erosion. Erosion is the removal and transportation of rock or soil. Erosion can move sediment through water, ice, or wind.

Water can wash sediment, such as gravel or pebbles, down from a creek, into a river, and eventually to that river's delta. Scientific research has characterized the effects of dredging, an underwater excavation process for navigational purposes or material extraction, and has shown its association with a number of chemical, physical and biological impacts.

Due to this, much environmental management has been applied in the. The effects of dredging on resuspended sediments and water quality were investigated for the Southern California Contaminated Sediments Task Force (Stivers et al ). Their results show that as the numbers and concentration of chemicals in the sediments increases, the potential for effects to aquatic organisms also increases.

According to Licursi and Gómez (), the effects of dredging involve two types of physicalechemical disturbances: (i) in the water column, by shifting chemical parameters and an alteration of. This chapter provides an overview of PCBs in the environment as a background to understanding their history of use, sources of input to the environment, distribution in the environment, and their human health and ecological e PCBs are such complex chemicals, knowledge of their chemical and physical properties is needed to understand their transport, fate, and toxicity.

In New York, a group called Cease PCB Dredging has tried to raise public awareness of the environmental problems posed by dredging the Hudson River.

They hope this added awareness will put pressure on policy makers to stop this activity. Cease PCB Dredging is engaging in. The complex uses of the river have also caused new initiatives between Switzerland and France.

This chapter presents the general physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of the Rhone River. All tributaries on the Swiss side are alpine rivers and have been used for water storage and hydroelectricity.

dredging method used affects the feasibility of various management options. The next section (section ) discusses the major physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of Bay area sediments in general — and dredged material in particular — that provide the basis of appropriate dredged material management.

DREDGING IN THE SAN. Dredging on the Great Lakes What is Dredging. Dredging is the removal of rock, sand, gravel, mud and clay from the bottom of waterways to create or maintain sufficient depth for navigation or other purposes.

Advanced economies use a lot of aggregate, about 6 to 12 tonnes per person per year. Most aggregate comes from hard rock quarries but some is sourced from river gravels.

It is well know that mining gravel from rivers can cause a lot of problems. Moving gravel miners out of the river and onto the floodplain is often seen as a safer option but there are substantial risks.
