Beneficial Use of Dredged Sediment; 3 min video describes Philadelphia project for 1mm cubic yards repurposed for construction

Posted on April 8, 2024

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) dredges millions of cubic yards of sediment annually from the Delaware River and Bay to provide for safe maritime navigation.

A construction contractor is removing up to a million cubic yards of this sediment from USACE’s Fort Mifflin Dredged Material Disposal site in southwest Philadelphia.

This provides for more capacity for future dredging and ensures the sediment serves a useful purpose. USACE has sediment available for free at similar sites across the region (Video by Bob Finkelstein)
