Beach Nourishment – Peck Beach, NJ
The tight channel was challenging, especially with large dredging materials and vessels. Southwind used hydraulic dredging to pump the materials out of the shallow lagoons through a pipeline to a disposal facility, known as Site 83, off Roosevelt Boulevard.
Southwind has a $2.1 million contract, but about 61 percent of that will be covered by state grants, because that proportion of the project area covers waters under state jurisdiction, Bergen said.
ACT Engineers inspector Juan Cruz said, “The guys have been doing this project since September,”. Cruz, whose company serves as Ocean City’ dredging consultant.
“I hope people can be happy with the end result,” Cruz said with a smile. “They will have a clean bay without all of the mud.”
