German term or phrase: Förderung von Bodenfeinteilen
In the context of site drainage and lowering of groundwater table: Der AN soll den Nachweis erbringen, dass keine Bodenfeinteile gefoerdert werden. Presumably this is undesirable. Can anyone explain what is meant by Foerderung here? Transport of soil particles?
