Dredging work in marine construction causes rising of turbidity and in turns damages the ecosystem and fisheries industry. It leads to suspension of dredging work and affects the construction schedule. This study examines the development of filtration methodology to remove suspended particulate caused by turbidity by using a spring filter accompanied with filtration aids. We conducted experiments and simulations in water aqueous suspension and development of a device for reducing the environmental damage was investigated. From many of the combination of experiment and simulation, we got the knowledge about the filtration accuracy and processing flow rate of filter aid.
