Abstract

The expected environmental impacts to occur due to new ports construction and development works are many and considered essential. This practical collective overview deals with some of them, which are related to dredging (as noise, visual hinder, smell, turbidity increasing, nutrient release and BOD change). The study also concentrated on some important measures to determine the suitable ones of the expected environmental impacts in the port vicinity. These measures are the accurate evaluation of the littoral drift and so the expected accumulated sediments in the port vicinity related to littoral drift movement direction. Besides, attention was given to the importance of the balance between cut and fill via a practical case study. The study gave a group of practical conclusion for the expected environmental impacts reduction/alleviation in the new constructed/developed port area.
