Precision Dredging

Client: Port Of Ridgefield

Location: Ridgefield, WA

MFA’s innovative design incorporated “precision dredging,” an approach that limits suspension of contamination; “fish-friendly” gravel to stabilize the bank; and shoreline habitat restoration. These environmentally sensitive components positioned the project for expedited permitting and resulted in significant cost and logistical advantages, including forgoing the use of a silt curtain. Further, the construction was implemented without a single water quality exceedance.
