Abstract : The landfill work which reclaimed an area of 74.0 ha at the Meinohama coastal area in Hakata Harbor was conducted in 1982-1985 by the Hakata Harbor Development Company. Several new technologies were applied, the most noticeable being the application of a new landfilling method characterized by placing dredged material in a pond with two to three staged intervals between placements. In this manner the dredged material is allowed to stabilize through selfweight consolidation during the intervals between placements. New technologies were also adopted for spillwater treatment and dredged material dewatering. This paper deals with the results of these technologies.
