Interesting. Where is soil excavated in Singapore dumped?

MPA has controlled measures in place, with regard to the dumping of dredged and land-based excavated materials at offshore dumping grounds managed by MPA, land reclamation sites and Offshore Disposal Sites (ODS). All applicants need to submit information such as the sampling size, method of dredging, characteristics of dredged or excavated material etc, to MPA’s Committee for Marine Projects. Please see attached document for reference [online here as a DOC for download www.mpa.gov.sg/sites/doc/chemical17oct07.doc ] MPA also monitors the actual dumping that takes place, in terms of the time, route and amount that is being dumped.
