Norfolk Dredging Gears Up for Longboat Key Beachfill

Norfolk Dredging Company will begin mobilizing its equipment to the south end of Longboat Key on August 8th to start construction of Segment 5 of the New Pass Dredging and Beach Nourishment Project.

The Pullen, a hydraulic cutterhead-suction pipeline dredger, is expected to arrive in the area on August 15th.

The dredging project from the New Pass channel borrow area will deliver sand to the southern L’Ambiance boundary and begin building the beach northward to Regent Place.

The dredger will use its 6,500 horsepower 24” on-board pumps to pump sand and water from the channel borrow area through a pipeline to the beach and no additional booster pumps will be used.

Dredging operations will be occurring 24/7 to complete this work as quickly as possible.

Once the south end dredging and sand placement in Segment 5 is complete, the dredging operations with the Pullen will move to the north end of the Key, using sand from Longboat Pass to fill two segments down to Gulfside Road.

This work will start in September after Labor Day.
