Abstract:
In 2006 a second disposal test (500.000 + 900.000 m3) was executed near the Walsoorden sandbar, using the traditional clapping technique to dispose the dredged sediments. An intensive monitoring programme (+ evaluation criteria) were defined based on the experience of the first test. The monitoring consisted of MBES, sediment transport and ecological monitoring. Most of monitoring was performed by external contractors (contracts with Flemish government).

JJP was a member of the steering committee that performed the follow-up of the monitoring and the results.

In 2010 FHR evaluated this second disposal test and organized a workshop where the results were presented.
