La déshydratation des matériaux dragués peut être réalisée par des processus plus ou moins passifs de séchage à l'atmosphère ou par des procédés mécaniques ou thermiques. Dans le premier cas, les matériaux sont simplement asséchés dans des bassins de sédimentation par gravité et évaporation naturelle ou en favorisant leur drainage.
