Nadi River flood mitigation dredging

With many of Fiji’s coastal rivers suffering from serious sediment build-up as a result of soil erosion in the upper catchments, and tropical rains and cyclones posing significant flood threats to towns and villages in coastal deltas, Hall Pacific was engaged to remove excess sediment from the Nadi River in 2008.

Following the successful completion of this contract, our team has since been awarded a further three contracts on-site, dredging a total of 1.6 million m3 of sediment and significantly reducing the impacts of flooding in the area.

Local Fijian operators and crew formed an integral part of the project, with Hall Pacific also training government surveyors in hydrographic survey techniques.
