USACE launches Santa Barbara Harbor dredging tender

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District is looking for a contractor that will perform the next cycle of dredging works at Santa Barbara Harbor.


According to the Corps, the construction services will consist of maintenance dredging of the federal navigation channels at Santa Barbara Harbor with dredge material to be placed on down coast beaches.

Dredging at Santa Barbara Harbor occurs biannually, generally in the late fall(November/December) and early spring (March/April) and will consist of a total of six dredge cycles.

A typical dredge cycle volume is approximately 120,000 cubic yards. Dredging will occur in depths up to -35? MLLW in an exposed, open ocean environment.

The Project is required to maintain the Federally-authorized channel configurations and to restore and ensure safe navigability within the harbor.
