Ghent - Bourgoyen

At Ghent a small canal at the Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen area has been dredged as part of an environmental project.  To avoid damage to both the banks and the surrounding areas the soil from this poorly accessible canal was transported using small barges to a temporary quay.  The soil was discharged onto lorries to be disposed of at a recycling plant.
From a 2000m stretch of canal about 30.000m³ of contaminated soil has been removed.
