The backhoe excavator dredger New York is working in tandem with the drill barge Apache to remove rock fragments from locations where blasting has just taken place near Chester, PA.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its contractor Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company are conducting rock blasting operations on the Delaware River.

Work is a part of a project to deepen the federal channel of the river to provide for more efficient maritime transport of cargo.
