Town of Sandwich Seeks Permit for Dredging Project

The Town of Sandwich is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to conduct work in waters of the U.S. in conjunction with placing dredged and fill material at Town Neck Beach to restore the eroding beach in Sandwich, Mass.

The proposed project involves work and the placement of dredged and fill material below the high tide line of waters of the U.S. in order to perform beach and dune nourishment of Town Neck Beach.

Approximately 388,000 cubic yards of material will be placed along 5,000 linear feet of the beach covering 41 acres in area.

The town is seeking the flexibility to construct the project using a mixture of trucking and hydraulic pumping of dredged material, potentially in phases over multiple years.

This flexibility will allow beneficial reuse of dredged sediment when it becomes available from nearby dredging projects, with additional sand trucked to the site from local sources as funding allows. Some of the dredged material may come from the Cape Cod Canal.

The Corps is preparing a suitability determination to determine if the nourishment material is compatible with the existing beach sediments.

The project purpose is to restore the eroding beach and dunes to manage coastal erosion and upland flooding. The project also will help protect existing salt marsh and improve recreational benefits of the beach.
