Picture of the Day: Blasting in Arthur Kill Channel (USA)

Blasting in Arthur Kill Channel

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, recently completed planned drilling and underwater blasting in the Arthur Kill Channel between the New York Container Terminal, Staten Island, NY and Elizabeth, NJ.

For the last time, in this contract area, the contractor, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company, carefully drilled holes in the shale bedrock located there, filled the holes with precisely measured amount of explosives, and completed a final blast muffled by the water and creating a circular rippling foamy wave.
