KSC Dredging – Titusville, FL



The project consists of maintenance dredging to remove approximately 200,000 cubic yards of material from a 2 mile-long, 125 feet wide section of the Banana River channel to restore the depth of the channel to -13.0 feet Mean Water Level (MWL). The permitted depth is -12.0 feet MWL, plus one foot allowable overdepth to -13.0 feet MWL. The current average depth of the section of channel to be dredged is -10.0 feet MWL. For hydraulic dredging, the distance to the existing spoil site will be 4 miles away at the farthest point, and 2 miles away at the closest point to the section of channel to be dredged. Monitoring of the spoil site during and post dredging operations (while the water is drained from the spoil) will be

required. A bathymetric survey of the 2-mile section of the channel to be dredged will be provided during solicitation of this work.
