Nutten Hook-Staats Point Area in Need of Dredging

According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, approximately 250,000 cubic yards of material will be removed soon from the Hudson River Federal Navigation Project Channel at Nutten Hook, Stuyvesant and Staats Point.

Dredged material will be placed at the federally owned Houghtaling Island placement site.

Placement site work will consist of disposal of a heavy vegetative cover, excavation of fill material, construction of new and reinforcement of existing containment dikes and the installation of weirs and pipeline in the areas designated for the placement of the dredged materials.

The contractor will need to perform all water quality sampling, testing and monitoring activities to ensure compliance with contract requirements.

The estimated cost of this cleanup project is between $5 mln and $10 mln.
