1. A method for producing a structural fill material comprising the steps of:

  • obtaining a dredged material;

    depositing the dredged material into a containment receptacle;

    removing free water from the dredged material and the containment receptacle;

    creating an additive slurry in a mixing container;

    pumping the additive slurry from the mixing container to a mixing assembly disposed within the containment receptacle;

    mixing the additive slurry into the dredged material to form a substantially homogenous mixture; and

    , curing the substantially homogenous mixture in the containment receptacle, thereby producing a structural fill material and reducing particulate emissions.
