Environmental Impact Assessment

Stone Mobility, Port Phillip Bay Entrance

Rock material left over from the dredging of Port Phillip Bay may be transported along the seabed by wave and current action. DHI has calculated the movement of the rock material and suggested methods to prevent the rocks from migrating into the nearby environmentally sensitive deep canyon. Furthermore, DHI has suggested dredging methods which may reduce the rock migration.

MIKE SHE assistance, MC Roskilde

MC Roskilde needs an integrated modelling tool for a range of water management tasks addressing both surface water, ground water and the interaction between the groundwater aquifers and streams. The tool must be dynamic and distributed. MC Roskilde has decided to develop the tool on the existing national water resources model with major inputs from DHI. The MIKE SHE / MIKE11 modeling system developed by DHI is applied. The extended and calibrated model is developed to support both regional scale and local scale models ranging from 25 m to 500 m in spatial resolution.

Esbjerg Harbour EIA and environmental license of A CONFINED DISPOSAL SITE IN ESBJERG HARBOUR FOR CONTAMINATED SEDIMENTS

The harbour of Esbjerg is situated in the Danish Wadden Sea of the North Sea that is characterised by high tidal variations with a high load of suspended sediments. This causes siltation of Esbjerg Harbour requiring yearly maintenance dredging of approximately 460,000 m³ of which 40,000 m³ is too contaminated to be dumped into the Wadden Sea. The harbour has proposed that a confined disposal site with an area of 26 hectare and a volume of 520,000 m³ should be constructed at the shallow part of the Wadden Sea in the harbour area. This site will have a capacity for about 20 years of disposal. The surplus water will be discharged to the sea. DHI is preparing an EIA and an application for the environmental license for the project. A mathematical model has been set-up concerning discharge of contaminants (heavy metals, antifouling agents and organic pollutants like PAH) from the disposal site. It includes a physical model describing the dispersal of pollutants from all pollution sources in the area so that the impact on the environment from all sources can be assessed. Based on the model an ecotoxicological assessment of the impact from the present situation and with the impacts from the discharge from the confined disposal site has been carried out.
