Corps Uses DREGEPACK® to Maintain Beaches and Channels

In 2012, the U.S. was hit with one of the most memorable and destructive hurricanes yet, Hurricane Sandy. Two years later Sandy is still having a huge impact on both land and sea.

The USACE’s New England District is on a mission to restore and clean the beaches and channels in Block Island, RI. The Corps is now using a special dredge to make the entrance channel to the Harbor of Refuge to remove hazardous shoals in the channel.

During this Block Island restoration project, DREGEPACK® was used to maintain the channels and restore the beaches from Hurricane Sandy’s major damage and erosion.

DREDGEPACK® allows the operator to monitor and record digging operations and allows the contractor to maximize digging efficiency while providing a record of digging operations.

HYPACK was used during the pre and post dredge operation to ensure the channel was dredged to ensure safe navigation of the channel used daily by commercial fishing boat, ferries, and recreational boats.
