Dredge MURDEN Conducting Assateague Island Operations

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, has released this beautiful photo of the dredge MURDEN performing regularly scheduled Assateague Island bypass operations off the coast of Ocean City, MD.

The MURDEN will be removing material from in and around the channel, with an emphasis on the ebb and flood shoals in which sand is traditionally trapped while naturally moving south toward Assateague Island.

The regularly-scheduled bypass dredging performed twice a year assists with sediment transport across the inlet south to Assateague Island mitigating impacts to natural sediment transport caused by the Ocean City Inlet and its jetties.

Dredge MURDEN is slated to remove an additional estimated 30,000 cubic yards of material during its two weeks of bypass operations, some of which will come from the channel.

All material dredged during both operations will be beneficially reused and placed south of the inlet off Assateague Island National Seashore.
