Gravel Extraction

Offshore sand and gravel extraction involves the abstraction of sediments from a bed which is always covered with seawater This activity started in the early twentieth century (in the mid-1920s in the UK) but did not reach a significant scale until the 1960s and 1970s when markets for marine sand and gravel expanded and dredging technology improved (Figure 1)

Dec 17 2016While there have been improvements to mining practices in recent years significant environmental risks remain Negative impacts can vary from the sedimentation caused by poorly built roads during exploration through to the sediment and disturbance of water during mine construction Water pollution

that date gravel excavation has continued to be routinely approved for the purpose of property protection wherever it is determined that removal will provide the intended relief and will not significantly contribute to increased system instability Through the late '70's and early '80's the practice of gravel mining from rivers
