Ocean City to Invite Bids for Lagoons Dredging
Ocean City Council voted unanimously yesterday to advertise for bids from contractors who can dredge two of Ocean City’s shallow lagoons, according to OCNJ Daily.
The proposed dredging areas are Carnival Bayou (the lagoon between 16th and 17th streets) and at Snug Harbor (the lagoon between Eighth Street and W. Revere Place near Ninth Street).
This dredging project will include removal of approximately 60,200 cubic yards of material: 44,200 from Carnival Bayou and 16,000 from Snug Harbor.
The work will mark the continuation of dredging for the first time since 2012, when all work stopped as the only approved disposal site was filled to capacity.
