Boskalis - Kitimat, B.C., Canada - Case Study
Description: Contaminated sediments must be removed and a new basin dredged for a terminal for LNG Canada. Nearby eelgrass beds should be protected from sedimentation caused by sediment spill from the dredging works, especially if those sediments are contaminated. Three SediMeter SM4 are deployed in the nearby eelgrass beds to monitor turbidity and sediment accumulation, and a fourth instrument is used as a reference on the opposite side of the fjord.
