As the Notore Channel suffers from high siltation, CARES Group completed a Dredging Optimisation Study to support the optimisation of dredging plans and budgets.
A key stage in this project was completing a siltation study. This resulted in developing an understanding of the processes and rates of siltation in the channel.
An understanding of the siltation regime was developed through a number of complimentary approaches:
Based on this understanding recommendations have been made to optimise dredging.
CARES Group continues to support the Bonny Channel Company (BCC) in the development of the Bonny Waterways.
