Can a ‘Mud Motor’ of dredged sediment help enhance salt marsh development naturally?
Following the Building with Nature concept, a pilot study was conducted introducing finegrained dredged sediments as a semicontinuous source of mud into a shallow tidal channel, naturally dispersing sediment to nearby mudflats and salt marshes.
New article: The Mud Motor
12 September 2019 - The Mud Motor. A beneficial use of dredged sediment to enhance salt marsh development.  An innovative approach to beneficially re-use dredged sediment to enhance salt marsh development was tested by a ‘Mud Motor’. A Mud Motor is a dredged sediment disposal method in which a semi-continuous source of mud in a shallow tidal channel allows natural processes to disperse sediment to nearby mudfl
Can a lake’s ecology be restored with unwanted sediment?
Can a lake’s ecology be restored with unwanted sediment?
In collaboration with the Natuurmonumenten (the Dutch Society for the Preservation of Nature), Boskalis constructed the Marker Wadden. The archipelago situated within the Markermeer enables processes which revitalise the natural ecology.
