Waackaack Dredging Scheme Set for Next Week

New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) yesterday announced a project to dredge the Waackaack Creek Channel in Keansburg, Monmouth County.

The $375,000 project is part of NJDOT’s comprehensive State Channel Dredging Maintenance Program to ensure and maintain safe navigation statewide.

NJDOT’s contractor, Wickberg Marine Contracting, Inc. is expected to begin dredging on December 12 to remove a hazardous shoal and restore a portion of the channel to authorized depth east of the Keansburg Flood gate.

The project is intended to operate 10 hours a day, Monday through Saturday, NJDOT said.

The work will be done in portions of Waackaack Creek to remove sand shoaling. The proposed dredging depth will be 5 feet, and it is estimated 6,000 cubic yards of material will be removed.

Dredged material will be placed in the Keansburg Confined Disposal Facility (CDF).

This channel was last dredged in 2014, and this effort is part of the maintenance cycle to keep state navigation channels safe and navigable.
