Sediment Management

GEC, NCI and CTC engineers, economists, and environmental professionals possess more than 30 years’ experience developing sediment management plans for projects across the United States.

Sand, cobble, and fine sediments are important natural resources critical to the environmental health and economic vitality of the coastal zone. Among other benefits, reestablishing shoreline equilibrium for shore protection, channel stabilization, beach reestablishment and maintenance conserves and restores valuable sediment resources that can:

  • Reduce shoreline erosion and coastal storm damages;
  • Protects sensitive environmental resources;
  • Preserves and enhances beaches; and
  • Improves water quality.
