Dredge Spoil Disposal Sites - Closed and Disused
This map layer has been supplied directly by Marine Scotland National Marine Plan interactive. You can obtain additional information about the layer on this page
This layer shows the locations of dredge spoil disposal sites that are designated as disused (not used for at least 5 years) or closed (not used for at least 10 years or specifically closed). The locations are indicated by points (beyond 1:2,000,000) and polygons (below 1:2,000,000). The spoil is usually as a result of navigational dredging (deepening of navigation channels) on the approaches to ports and harbours.
