We can design and implement a sediment monitoring project, supervise a sediment monitoring project executed by others, help define the permit criteria for a sediment monitoring project.
It’s impossible to dredge without spilling some part of the sediment into the water. Sediment spill may negatively affect the biota. Benthic filtering organisms are sensitive for sediment accumulation and elevated near-bed sediment concentrations. Benthic primary producers are negatively affected by a decrease in incident light caused by suspended sediment in the water column, while pelagic organisms may be directly harmed by it.
