USACE’s Hopper Dredger Essayons on Its Way to Hawaii

The Coast Guard is scheduled to temporarily move aids to navigation in four of the main Hawaiian Islands commercial harbors to assist the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with planned dredging operations beginning this week.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ hopper dredger Essayons will conduct maintenance dredging in March and April starting in Nawiliwili this week, and then at Kalaeloa (Barbers Point), Hilo, Kahului and Honolulu harbors.

During operations near Barbers Point no aids will need to be moved but mariners should exercise caution around dredging operations.

Mariners entering or departing Nawiliwili Harbor during this time period are encouraged to contact the Essayons to determine the location of dredging operations and coordinate passing arrangements,” the Coast Guard said in its announcement.

During these dredging schemes, the Essayons crew will dredge approximately 290,000 cubic yards of material.

The dredge spoils will be safely disposed of at EPA-designated ocean disposal sites.
