NJWSA Proposes Delaware and Raritan Canal Dredging Plan

The New Jersey Water Supply Authority (NJWSA) is proposing to dredge the Delaware and Raritan Canal (D&R Canal), from Kingston to Amwell Road, Franklin Township, Somerset County.

This project will remove an estimated 248,000 cubic yards of sediment from the canal to increase flow capacity and the estimated cost of the project is $51.86 million, the authority said in its release.

The D&R Canal is a source of drinking water for millions of residents in central New Jersey and provides various recreational opportunities. The design of the project will take into account surrounding cultural and natural resources and address water supply needs of the area.

The EID (Environmental Information Document) for the project will be on display beginning this week.

According to the announcement, written comments will be accepted through June 5, 2017.

Public notice for the project was initially advertised on April 11, 2013 at a project cost of $35.5 million. The project was delayed in order to develop a beneficial reuse disposal site for the dredged material.
