USACE to Dredge Sandy Hook Channel

This week, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced plans to dredge the Sandy Hook Channel and place the dredged sand in the Sea Bright Offshore Borrow Area.

The Sandy Hook Channel was last dredged in 2015.

The plan calls for dredged material to be used to replenish the Sea Bright Offshore Borrow Area, which was hit hard during Superstorm Sandy.

The proposed maintenance dredging would involve the removal of approximately 350,000 cubic yards of gravel and sand to be placed at the borrow area, which is located approximately 1 nautical mile east of Sandy Hook and has been used as a material source for beach nourishment projects since 1994.

There will be a public comment period on the proposal lasting until March 14, 2017.
