New Edition of Environmental Aspects of Dredging Released

IADC (International Association of Dredging Companies) and CEDA (Central Dredging Association) have published a revised version of Environmental Aspects of Dredging. The new and updated edition, edited by R.H. (Nick) Bray and published by Taylor & Francis, integrates the IADC-CEDA series of seven stand-alone reference works on dredging and the environment.

This new illustrated volume is 384 pages. It has been thoroughly rewritten and restructured, with contributions from many experts, researchers and professionals, including the IADC/CEDA editorial advisory board, the CEDA Environmental Commission (CEC), the EuDA (European Dredging Association) environmental committee and numerous IADC, CEDA, Eastern Dredging Association (EADA) and Western Dredging Association (WEDA) members.

The book treats all environmental aspects of dredging, including the assessment of design effects, process effects, sampling and testing, dredged material management, international and regional legislation and case studies, and reflects recent industry advances. The book is of particular interest to engineers, government agencies and port authorities, as well as civil engineering consultants and contractors involved in planning and designing dredging, maritime infrastructure and fluvial projects.

Fundamental to the philosophy behind this new edition is the principle that dredging is a
necessary activity in civilization’s development, but that sustainability is paramount. The authors acknowledge that dredging techniques and activities in and of themselves will always make some change in the environment and that, although dredging always seeks to improve a given situation, awareness of the repercussions of change is essential. This book is invaluable in assessing whether any planned dredging will have a positive or negative impact on our environment, how we can plan and monitor projects and, when possible, reuse dredged material.
