Beneficial Use of Dredged Sediments

Hugo Neu Corporation Sustainability Seminar Series

Attendance is free but seating is limited to 30 people, so please RSVP to Dr. Sarkar at [email protected]

Dave Himmelheber, PhD, PE
Principal Engineer, Geosyntec Consultants

Several contaminated sediment sites in the New York and New Jersey region are scheduled to undergo dredging-based remediation over the next 10 years. The end use of the dredged material is typically placement in a landfill, often times in locations across the US and Canada and transported by rail. Finding means of beneficially using the dredged sediment will improve the sustainability of the remediation efforts. Beneficial uses of dredged sediment will be presented along with an example quantitative assessment of sustainability benefits associated with such applications.

Dave Himmelheber, PhD, PE is a Principal Engineer with Geosyntec Consultants based in the Princeton, NJ area. Dave specializes in contaminated sediment management and remediation and he has served as project manager and design engineer on several major projects in the NY/NJ area.

For more information, please contact Dr. Dibs Sarkar at [email protected] For those who are unable to attend in person, the seminar will be live webcast via Stevens WebCampus and Blackboard Collaborate.
