Sediment is one of the most common pollutants entering Florida waters.  Sediment transport can impact receiving waters by reducing sunlight penetration, blanketing aquatic vegetation, and carrying other pollutants such as nutrients and metals.  This seminar addressed the effects of sediment on water quality and provided an overview of dredging methods and techniques used to remove excess sediments from aquatic systems.  In addition, the seminar provided case study examples on prevention by maintaining the MS4 system; how to determine access points for dredging projects; recommendations for proper reuse and disposal; permitting requirements; and how to get BMAP credits from dredging and street sweeping projects.
