Hudson River Dredging Could Cost Up to $10M

The New York District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proposing to perform maintenance dredging from Nutten Hook to Staats Point, New York, NY.

The work will involve maintenance dredging of approximately 250,000 cubic yards of material from three discontinuous reaches of the Hudson River Federal Navigation Project Channel at Nutten Hook, Stuyvesant and Staats Point; with upland placement of the dredged material in the federally owned Houghtaling Island dredged material placement site.

The three dredging areas are located the following approximate distances from the Houghtaling Island placement site: Nutten Hook, 6 miles; Stuyvesant, 2 miles; and Staats Point, 8 miles.

The contractor is required to properly prepare two separate containment areas (Area A and Area B) within the Houghtaling Island placement site in accordance with the contract requirements prior to placing the dredged material.

Placement site work includes, but is not limited to: the clearing and disposal of a heavy vegetative cover, excavation of fill material, construction of new and/or 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 also be responsible for performing all water quality sampling, testing and monitoring activities to ensure compliance with contract requirements.

The estimated range for this project is $5,000,000 and $10,000,000.
