Bushy Park Landing is located near the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek and provides public access to Foster Creek and the Cooper River.

The dredging project, governed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is set to begin this fall and completed this dredge season, which runs from October to March.

The work includes but is not limited to mobilization, demobilization, dredging, transportation, disposal, and supervision for removing approximately 150,000 cubic yards of unclassified sediments within the dredge area, which is from the Cooper River to the saltwater side of Bushy Park Landing.

The sediment will be delivered to the Clouter Creek South Cell disposal site in North Charleston, pending approval from the Army Corps. Crews will dredge down eight feet and 200 feet across at low tide.
