Norfolk Dredging Gears Up for St. Lucie Inlet Work

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, said in its latest announcement that the St. Lucie Inlet maintenance dredging operations are set to begin in early September.

The channel maintenance will remove roughly 384,000 cubic yards of material.

The contractor, Norfolk Dredging, will place all material in a permitted disposal area located about 10.6 nautical miles offshore of Jupiter Island, southeast of the inlet. The sand deposited in the disposal area is permitted for use as a source to renourish the beaches of Jupiter Island in the future, said USACE.

Work in the contract also includes turbidity monitoring, endangered species monitoring, and more.

This project is a response to impacts from Hurricane Matthews’s passage in 2016, and is federally funded with Hurricane Matthew Supplemental Operations and Maintenance funds.

The Corps awarded the $5.4 million contract August 16.
