Resilience measure: Hydraulic filling

definition

Hydraulic Fill is fill in which the materials are deposited by a flowing stream of water. This fill material will originate from a borrow area or dredging site and be transported to the reclamation area by dredger, barge or pipeline. It is then placed as a mixture of fill material and process water in the reclamation area. Hydraulic Fill has a wide variety of applications for infrastructure construction projects. (IADC, 2012 )
