AIWW Maintenance Dredging, Wilmington NC
This project is for maintenance dredging of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW) between Morehead City and Shallotte and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Fort Macon and Wrightsville Beach basins.
The AIWW and USCG maintenance dredging work will consist of removal and disposal of shoaled material that has accumulated in the channels and basin since the various areas were last dredged. Dredging depth is 12′ required depth plus 2′ of allowable overdepth for the AIWW channels, 10′ required depth plus 2′ of allowable overdepth for the USCG Wrightsville Beach basin, and 22’required depth plus 2′ of allowable overdepth for the Fort Macon USCG basin.
The estimated quantities of material to be dredged are 400,000 cubic yards from the AIWW, 5,000 cubic yards from USCG Wrightsville Beach basin, and 80,000 cubic yards from the USCG Fort Macon basin. Disposal of dredged material will be on approved ocean beaches and upland disposal islands. The disposal islands are confined disposal areas with containment dikes and spillway systems.
