Abstract

Dredging work involves a range of marine soils, varying from coarse to fine, clean to contaminated. The work includes excavation and disposal phase, may affect the marine environment through releasing of the possible contaminants. Dredged marine soils (DMS) are classified as contaminated waste that contain of organic matter and heavy metals. Contaminated DMS can harm aquatic organism, animals and human. It must be disposed safely to ensure the contaminants are not released. DMS was analyzed for identification of pathogenic bacteria. Due to the potential for transmission of diseases, this hazards becomes a major concern as the DMS has its own values for reuse or recycle purposes. Numbers of pathogen, including the indicator bacteria, Escherichia coli have been used to assess the level of contamination in marine environment.
