PHOTO: USACE’s Dredger Currituck at Work

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has just released a photo of their dredger Currituck taking a load of sand dredged from Ocean City Inlet to be deposited in the surf zone off of Assateague Island, on December 22, 2016.

The dredger, based out of the Corps’ Wilmington District in North Carolina, is carrying out dredging in and around Ocean City Inlet as part of the bi-annual Assateague Island Bypass work.

This cleanup scheme involves dredging of sand trapped by Ocean City Inlet that would otherwise drift south to nourish the beaches at Assateague.

The dredger then deposits that sand within the surf zone along the northern end of Assateague Island.
