Abstract
The engineering properties of most dredgings were found to be quite similar to those of fine-grained, organic soils, and the general notion that maintenance dredgings are soft and weak is only partially due to their inherent nature; the primary reason for this condition seems to be attributable to the environmental circumstances under which they are frequently placed, namely, in low lying swampy areas with poor drainage. Although the chemical composition of polluted maintenance dredgings is often quite unique compared to that of most soils, the influence of other major factors, such as water content and density, tends to control their engineering behavior, and the unique chemical nature of the dredgings is usually subjugated to a somewhat minor role. Subject to appropriate handling, it appears that dewatered dredgings can be compacted to form a medium-density landfill which may be used for parking lots or residential construction.
