Orange Lake Dredging Starts

The preparation works for the Orange Lake dredging scheme, located in the City of New Port Richey, Florida, are currently underway, local media reports.

Energy Resources Inc., the Chesterfield, Missouri, based dredging contractor, won the job last fall, according to the Public Works Director, Robert Rivera.

Preliminary work has already started, added Martin Field, Public Works construction project manager. A barge will soon be set up on the surface of the lake with a large hose to suck sediment from the lake bottom.

According to the official city’s announcement, the Orange Lake dredging program will include:

  • Hydraulic dredging of 3,600 cubic yards of sediment from the lake;
  • Conveyance of dredged material to the permitted dewatering site;
  • Loading and hauling of dewatered material to the receiving landfill.

Weather permitting, the work will conclude by February.
