Cavache to Begin Bakers Haulover IWW Dredging on November 18

A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operations and maintenance dredging project within the Intracoastal Waterway (IWW) Bakers Haulover area will start as early as November 18, USACE said in their latest release. 

The Bakers Haulover reach is one of the top three shoaling areas along the entire IWW, requiring dredging roughly every two years. With Miami Dade County beaches being highly erosive and in constant need of sand, we have an opportunity to dredge the IWW and put sand on eroded beaches at no cost to the local communities,” said USACE IWW Project Manager Shelley Trulock.

Federally authorized channels are routinely maintained for navigational purposes. The IWW within this area is authorized at 10 feet deep by 125 feet wide.

USACE awarded a nearly $1.6 million contract to Cavache, Inc. of Pompano Beach, Fla., September 19, with funding obtained due to waterway impacts from the passage of Hurricane Matthew in October 2016.

Channel surveys showed approximately 50,000 cubic yards of material within the Federal channel that is causing concerns for maintaining a safe navigable channel within this highly utilized reach of the IWW, said USACE.

Cavache will place dredged material on Bal Harbor beach, starting about 1,000 feet south of the inlet and running another 1,000 feet south between monuments R28 and R29.

Mobilization activities will start on or around November 13 along the beach with mobilization of the actual dredge to the area as early as November 10, according to USACE.

Dredging operations are anticipated to run from November 18 through January 2018.
