Sevenson: Getting ready for Absecon dredging

Sevenson Environmental Services is mobilizing a DSC Dredge’s LLC Wolverine Class Dredge at the NJDOT Absecon Creek Maintenance Dredging & Channel Improvements Project in Atlantic City, NJ.


Under the project, 71.000 cubic yards of sediment will be removed from the channel via hydraulic dredging.

The material will be pumped up to a distance of 21,000 LF, requiring five booster pumps, to an existing confined disposal facility (CDF) and into TenCate Geosynthetics geotextile tubes.
