John Marlin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The beneficial reuse of sediment generated by various recreational, environmental and navigation projects is a priority with several agencies. Illinois has completed several projects over the past decade and is pur-suing others, on both large and small water bodies. The presentation will cover current projects where dredged material is being used as topsoil including Walton Lake at Litchfield, initiatives with the Fox Waterway Agency, East Peoria, Decatur, and projects in the Chicago area. The results of some earlier work at the US Steel South Works Site in Chicago and the Banner Marsh Fish and Wildlife Area will be covered. Some lessons learned over the years will also be discussed.
