Scope and content

A portable eight-inch suction dredge provided by the United Nations Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) to help improve the Republic of Korea's rivers and for flood control work has begun test operations at Yoida, an island in the Han River at Seoul. UNKRA purchased the dredge and accessory equipment for the Government from the Ellicott Machine Corporation, Baltimore, Maryland at a total cost of $87,500. Designed especially for land reclamation and channel clearance work, the dredge has an output capacity of from 60 to 120 cubic yards an hour, depending on the material being dredged, and can pump heavy material to a distance of 1,000 feet and lighter materials up to 2,000 feet.
