Bergerson Construction, Inc. completed a hydraulic dredging project last week for the Port of Newport at the NOAA facility in Newport, OR.
According to an official Bergerson’s announcement, this project was their first endeavor with the new Damen dredge pump.
Initially, before the project started in January, Big River – a sub-contractor to Bergerson Construction – prepared the dredge spoil site in South Beach.
First they checked all the silt fences and put up new sections where it was needed. They also excavated the secondary settling pond and reinforced the walls with that material.
The dredged spoils arrived by pipeline from a dredge on a barge at the work site in front of the NOAA pier.
