  • Site-specific research to determine the disposal strategy, more

Based on the positive results of the 2 in situ disposal tests, the concept of morphological disposal was integrated in the disposal strategy in the Western Scheldt during the 3rd deepening of the navigation channel. During the environmental impact assessment (EIA) this alternative with the morphological disposal along sandbars was evaluated as the most environmental suited alternative. Based on the results from the EIA, further research to optimize the disposal strategy was performed at FHR. JJP was a member of the research team, and performed a role of external advisor and revisor within this study.
