Abstract
    Industrial expansion in the harbor areas of Antwerp has altered environmental conditions to a great extent. This study examines the relation between the water economy of the port of Antwerp docks and the composition of dock waters, sediments, and interstitial waters, with emphasis on trace metals and chlorides. Some conclusions are reached as to the possible use of the dredged deposits in agriculture.
