Beneficial use of sediment
Abstract:Sediment excavated from an Illinois River backwater with a clamshell bucket was stockpiled on a field. The following day it loaded into concrete handling trucks. A concrete pump and placing boom had little difficulty handling the material. A telescoping conveyor also handled the material with little difficulty. The sediment stayed on the belts and negotiated the transfer point. The belt cleaners performed well. Minor problems, such as bridging in hoppers and splatter at some fittings designed for concrete, can be addressed with some operational or other changes. The pumps, booms, belts and scrapers satisfactorily handled this material.
