Donjon Marine Wraps Up Flushing Bay Dredging

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, recently completed the Flushing Bay and Creek Federal Navigation Channel Maintenance Dredging Project, with the removal of approximately 135,000 cubic yards of dredged material.

We’re proud to have completed this significant project on time, within budget and in an environmentally responsible manner,” said Col. David Caldwell, commander, New York District. “As stewards of our Nation’s waterways, we’ve improved the channel’s functionality, allowing for safe passage of vessels moving throughout the Flushing Bay and Creek federal navigable waters.”

New York District awarded a $10.1 million contract to Donjon Marine Co. Inc., Hillside, NJ, for the removal of dredged material in order to return the channel to its authorized depth of 15 feet.

The material dredged from the channel was a mixture of sand, silt, and clay. This material has been beneficially reused for placement at an upland site in Sayreville, NJ. A closed environmental clamshell bucket was used during the dredging project to ensure compliance with the State-issued Water Quality Certification.

The Flushing Bay Federal Channel supports 14 marine terminals that receive and ship sand, stone, and petroleum products by barge, with approximately 1,425,000 tons of cargo transported through the channel annually.
