from introduction, ". . .Dredging is the removal of submerged materials by hydraulic or mechanical means. Dredging is most commonly used to create or maintain waterways or to gather materials (often sand and gravel) for fill, construction aggregate, or other commercial purposes. Dredging is necessary to maintain the depth of many shipping channels and of the water adjacent to many docking facili ties , including t hose used to support recreational boating and commercial fishing. . ."
