Picture of the Day: Dodge Island at Work

The USACE’s Philadelphia District, has just posted on its official facebook page the latest photo from the Long Beach Island sand replenishment scheme.

The Corps and its contractor Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company began dredging and beachfill operations in early May in the borough of Ship Bottom.

Great Lakes mobilized two dredgers, the Padre Island and the Dodge Island (shown on the photo), to undertake beachfill operations.

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

It is designed to reduce storm damages from future events and is 100 percent funded by the 2013 Disaster Relief Appropriations Act (PL113-2), commonly known as the Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill.
