Cashman to Dredge Tampa Bay

Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Company of Quincy, Mass., is about to begin dredge operations in Tampa Bay, Hillsborough County, Florida.

The dredging will begin on or about November 14, 2015, along the length of the Tampa Bay Channel (Federal Navigation Channel encompassing the entire Tampa Bay from Mullet Key Channel Lighted Buoy 26 west of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge).

The split-hull trailing suction hopper dredge Atchafalaya will be responsible for removing shoaled material from the federal channel. The removed material will be than transported to a booster barge in Hillsborough Bay.

Approximately 1,500 linear feet of floating and submerged pipeline will be placed in line with the booster barge to the shoreline.

Work on the project is expected to be completed in early May 2016.
