Ocean City Dredging to Resume

Dredging works on the south end beach replenishment project in Ocean City, NJ, are tentatively scheduled to resume on Monday, July 20, the Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, stated.

Army Corps spokesman Ed Vogt said that an engine replacement on the hopper dredger Liberty Island is progressing as expected, and work to rebuild Ocean City’s eroded south end beaches will restart in two weeks.

The beachfill project has been at a standstill since May 30, when the engine powering the dredging operations died, informs OCNJ Daily.

The engine was “totaled,” according to Army Corps, and the ship returned in Norfolk, Va., to get a new engine.
