John Poullain, PE
This four hour online course provides an overview for the planning, design and selection of dredged material as a manageable, beneficial resource as an alternative to normal methods of disposal. Land creation with dredged material often consists of filling, raising and protecting areas that are not normally, only periodically, or permanently submerged. The types of habitat considered in this course are upland, island, and aquatic. Guidelines for development of habitat suitable for nesting birds, fish and animals are discussed. Development of wetland habitats is also briefly discussed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
