USA: Industry Day Set for April 3
An Industry Day for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regional Superstorm Sandy Shore Protection and Navigation Dredging Projects will be held on April 3, 2013, beginning 11:00 am.
The purpose of this event is to allow the Government the opportunity to provide a brief overview of upcoming dredging projects’ requirements, address specific questions relating to the covered projects, and to seek information that can be valuable in planning the strategy of restoring beaches and navigation channels within USACE North Atlantic Division’s area of responsibility.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, North Atlantic Division’s continental United States (CONUS) Districts (New England District, New York District, Philadelphia District, Baltimore, and Norfolk District) are evaluating the use of dredged material to repair federally designed and constructed hurricane / shore protection projects damaged by Superstorm Sandy as well as channels already included in the Fiscal Year 2013 Operations and Maintenance and New Work Navigation Channel Dredging Programs.
Upcoming shoreline rehabilitation projects could involve transportation of dredged material from nearby federal navigation channels and/or off-shore borrow sites with beach placement and/or placement in emergency stockpiles.
Maintenance dredging projects may include dredged material placement in open water or upland dredged material placement sites depending upon the specific project requirements.
