Summary: These conference proceedings cover the use of AquaBlok™ compared to conventional capping materials such as sand and gravel in a remediation context. Topics such as considerations for plant growth and benthic re-colonization are covered. Thin (1 ft thick) caps using sand or Aquablok™ are given particular focus in the proceedings. The applications are discussed for both deep water and wetland/marsh environments. Bioturbation depths for a variety of sites and substrates are provided. Erosion rates for given flow velocities and substrates are also discussed.
