Cavache Kicks Off Bakers Haulover Inlet Dredging

A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operations and maintenance dredging project within the Intracoastal Waterway (IWW) Bakers Haulover area is underway, according to the Corps Jacksonville District.

Mobilization activities started last week along the beach, with the Contractor working through the holiday weekend to start the operations, reported the Corps.

USACE awarded this $1.6 million contract to Cavache, Inc. of Pompano Beach, Fla., on September 19.

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.

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 Corps’ IWW Project Manager Shelley Trulock.

The Contractor 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, added the Corps.

For the IWW project, Cavache will use dredge Maya Caelyn and tugboats Stacey or Big John. Dredging operations are anticipated to run from November 24 through January 2018.
