dc.description.abstractThe proposed Coega Port will be situated near the southern extreme of the Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) at the mouth of the Coega River to the east of Port Elizabeth. This specialist report deals with the issues and impacts associated with land disposal of excavated material, marine dredging and disposal, and outlines the monitoring guidelines for the dredging and disposal operation. Chapter 1 describes the port layout, limits and its proposed functions, which include acting as an inter-modal transshipment point for bulk cargo and containers for industries in the IDZ and the hinterland. A brief summary of the guidelines for the management of dredged material is then presented. This section is largely based on the PIANC guidelines, but incorporates issues from the equivalent ANZECC and South African documents. The guideline’s main purpose is to assist in the characterisation and subsequent management of dredged spoil based on contamination levels within the sediment. The next section broadly outlines the aims of the report and the scope of work for each section by the specialists, and finally the layout of the report is explained and the links between the various sections are revealed. Approximately 13 million m3 of dry material from dewatered excavations at the inner harbour basin site and the container terminal area will need to be safely transported and disposed of at various land based sites. Chapter 2 summarises the location and biophysical environment of seven potential sites, assesses their suitability as a disposal site for excavated material, identifies a number of issues and impacts relating to the disposal, suggests mitigating measures to alleviate the severity of impacts, where possible, and presents a few general recommendations for the management of the excavated material.en
