VIDEO: Dredger “Murden” Clears Barnegat Inlet

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District’s project at Barnegat Inlet requires dredging to provide a safe, reliable navigation channel for one of the most dangerous inlets on the east coast.

The project is critical to a large fishing fleet consisting of full-time commercial, charter and recreational vessels that contribute to the economic value of the nation.

The purpose of this program provides for a channel through the inlet and through the outer bar, a channel of suitable hydraulic characteristics extending in a northwesterly direction from the gorge in the inlet to Oyster Creek channel and through the latter channel to deep water in the bay, and the maintenance of a channel to connect Barnegat Light Harbor with the main inlet channel.

The project also provides for protecting the inlet channel with two converging stone jetties.
