Abstract : In the 10th, 12th, and 13th US/Japan Experts Meetings, it was reported that the Synthetic purification system of lakes and ports using the continuous-vacuum precoat filter was most effective and economical to dewater and reuse bottom sediments and water blooms. For several years, Japan has developed the high-rate, continuous-vacuum precoat filter which was more efficient and economical than the conventional apparatus. The findings by the field investigations at Lake Kasumigaura and Otsuka Pond-Mito city, etc., are reported herein.
