This project was focused on cost evaluations for dredging of five (5) reservoirs in Puerto Rico. These reservoirs were selected because of their importance in Puerto Rico. The cost estimates were made using a disposal site for the whole material, reusing 20% of the dredged material and reusing 50% of the dredged material, a total of three (3) cost estimates were made for each reservoir. The main objective of this research was to show that different alternatives have to be studies in order to make a dredging project. One third of the project cost can be reduced, if the dredged material is used for other purposes. Key Terms - Cost Estimate, Construction Material, Disposal Site, Dredging.
