USACE Invites Comments on Ocean City Dredging Permit

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, has posted a notice requesting public comments and recommendations for the permit application for dredging that includes the entire back bay of the Ocean City, NJ.

The applicant, the City of Ocean City, proposes dredging areas located along the back-bay shoreline area of the City of Ocean City, Cape May County, New Jersey, within Beach Thorofare (and various connected basins, including artificial lagoons), Great Egg Harbor Bay, Peck Bay/Crook Horn Creek, and Middle Thorofare/Corson Inlet, USACE said.

The city’s application includes dredging of private boat slips.

A total of 700,125 cubic yards of material is proposed to be dredged from 188.3 acres of waterway. Generally, there would be approximately 50,000 to 70,000 cubic yards of material dredged every year.

The applicant has requested authorization for 10 years of maintenance dredging.

Public comments for this project are due by November 15, 2017. The Ocean City application was submitted in December 2016.
