Picture of the Day: First Load of Sand Arrives

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, dredged and pumped the first load of sand onto Ship Bottom, New Jersey, yesterday, as part of their Storm Damage Reduction Project on Long Beach Island.

Its one of the largest beachfill contracts ever undertaken by USACE.

This program is a joint effort between the Army Corps and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, the Corps’ contractor, mobilized two dredges, the Padre Island and the Dodge Island, for this project.

The third dredge, the Liberty Island, is scheduled to arrive at the project site in August 2015 and begin operations in one of the remaining sections of this beach protection scheme.
