St. Lucie Inlet Dredging Program Begins Soon (USA)

Maintenance dredging of the St. Lucie Inlet will be underway from November through February. Equipment to be used in the four-month long project, such as vessels and barges, will begin arriving in the area in the coming days.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded the dredging contract to Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting. The contract calls for up to 200,000 cubic yards of sand to be dredged and bypassed to the beaches downdraft of the Inlet.

Martin County has planned an additional amount of up to 250,000 cubic yards sand to be dredged during this project.

The dredged sand will be transported via tug and barge through St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park. Sand will be offloaded at Peck Lake where it will be pumped via pipeline to beaches in Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge.
