EN DREDS

Expert Network on dredging and subsequent depositing operations at sea

Dredging and depositing of dredged material have an impact on the marine environment, especially on the integrity of the seafloor and on benthic communities. Hazardous substances released in consequence of dredging activities can also be of concern.

Based on the HELCOM Recommendation 36/2 on the management of dredged material at sea, the HELCOM Expert Network on dredging and subsequent depositing operations at sea (EN DREDS) was initially established in 2017.
