The estuarial environment shows certain specific features which must absolutely be taken into account as part of their management. The tide is specially responsible of a large amount of fine sedimentary material named in France as "bouchon vaseux (split plug)". We shall explain in this paper, the origin, the importance and the environmental consequences of this turbid mass, and try to find out some simple ideas about the operational management of the estuarial sediments.
