Nome Harbor Maintenance Dredging on the Table

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, is planning to conduct a two-year maintenance dredging project in Nome Harbor.

Under the proposed project, the selected contractor will be responsible for pre- and post-dredge surveys, annual maintenance dredging, and near shore placement of the dredged material.

According to the Corps, the initial proposal for the 2018-2020 Nome Harbor Maintenance Dredging project calls for the removal of 4,000 cubic yards (CY) of sediment from the inner entrance channel where depths vary from -22 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) to -10 feet MLLW.

USACE also reported that options for dredging an estimated 10,000 CY in the outer entrance channel (-22 feet MLLW), 15,000 CY in the sediment trap (-22 feet MLLW), and 5,000 CY in the harbor basin (-10 feet MLLW) may be included in the bid.

The work period for the 2019 and 2020 dredging works will be early May to late July, depending on the “ice out” conditions.

The estimated award date of this contract is 4 December 2017.
