Dredging is an important component of environmental restoration, water quality and maintaining smaller waterways that are used by both commercial and recreational users. Dredging can be the responsibility of municipalities, state agencies, and private sector industry. What issues should an owner expect to deal with during the permitting process? What are some of the drivers that force an owner to proceed with a dredging process? What lessons can we learn from the permitting and dredging process? What information can we gain from a successful dredging project?

This EBC Ocean and Coastal Resources annual conference will provide examples of projects from the start of the process, permitting and development, to the completion of the project and the lessons learned.
