Permits in Hand for Avalon Dredging

The Borough of Avalon has secured the permits it needs for a large dredging program that is expected to begin this fall.

Borough Council was briefed Wednesday night by municipal engineer Thomas Thornton who told the Council both state and federal permits are in hand for the project.

The project will dredge waterways along the back bay areas of Avalon and, through an agreement with Middle Township, will also include Sterbeck Harbor in Avalon Manor.

Requests for bids will begin on September 28 and a firm schedule will be released after a contract is awarded.
