The Cape May County Chamber of Commerce has just announced that their dredging forum “Keeping Our Economy Afloat” will take place on March 1, 2016 at the Greate Bay Country Club, Somers Point, NJ.
The event will focus on re-use opportunities for dredge materials and proposed legislation to make permitting a simpler, more streamlined process.
Dr. Stewart Farrell, from Stockton Coastal Research Center, will outline new options for the disposal of dredge materials and Dr. Richard Perniciaro, from Atlantic Cape Community College, will address the economic impact to the communities by activating and maintaining the blue economy throughout the Jersey coast.
A panel of speakers, which will present more information on alternative ways of dredge materials disposal, will include Dr. Lenore Tedesco from the Wetlands Institute, Ginger Kopkash, Asst. Commissioner NJDEP and Monica Chasten from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers.
