Ocean City, New Jersey, has filed a permit application with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for dredging authorization in the back-bay areas of the city.
The application includes a request by the city to make the current temporary access roadway from Roosevelt Boulevard to the disposal area into a permanent haul road.
This application was filed on December 31, 2016 and is currently under review by the Corps and NJDEP.
“To insure that the public is duly informed, the Corps has asked the city to issue this public announcement concerning the application and forthcoming Corps public notice, which will provide for a 30-day deadline for receiving public comments on the application,” the city said in its release.
The Ocean City permit application, if approved, will allow the city and private slip owners to hold a current permit to dredge materials from the back-bay waterfront, including Bayfront, lagoons, state channels and private slips along the entire developed length of the bayfront.
