Beneficial Uses of Dredged Material from the Quonset Point/Davisville Intermodal Port

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Date of Original Version



The technical feasibility of beneficial uses of dredged materials from the Quonset Point/Davisville port in Rhode Island was discussed. Sediments were characterized using a Multi-Sensor Core Logger for bulk density profiles and then classified in a laboratory testing program which included Atterberg Limits, grain-size analyses, and organic and chemical testing. The alternatives for beneficial uses were direct use for landfill and construction applications, cement enhancement, lime stablization, brownfield encapsulation with the low permeability sediments, and blending with coarser materials. The results of compression testing of the cement- enhance samples achieved strengths with potential construction materials.
