Cavache to Dredge Intracoastal Waterway
- Business & Finance
Cavache Inc. is about to begin dredge operations in portions of the Intracoastal Waterway near the Port of Palm Beach, Florida.
The channel west side of Peanut Island will be dredged.
Dredging operations will start on or about October 12th 2015, with the completion set for March 10, 2016. Dredge MAYA CAELYN will be disposing of the material via floating, submerged and landward pipelines. The disposal area is the Dredge Material Management Area on Peanut Island.
The portions of the pipeline closest to the dredge will remain floating during the operations and will be marked with flashing lights at night, in all other locations the pipeline will be sunk.
A booster pump may be located near the lagoon/docks on the west side of Peanut Island. Boaters are urged to maintain safe distance from the dredge to avoid potential interference with the pipeline.
