45-Foot Dredging – Tampa, FL



The re-nourishment project, awarded in September to Norfolk Dredging, began in Treasure Island. After the Treasure Island site was mobilized, nourishment commenced. Treasure Island’s Sunshine Beach and Sunset beach had sand dredged from John’s Pass.

Once complete, Norfolk Dredging began re-nourishing North Redington Beach with sand from the Egmont Shoal Borrow area; nourishment proceeded from south to north, finishing at the Ultimar Condo in Clearwater. Dredging on the northern section took up to six months to complete.

During this project, special care was taken to remove rocks and shells from dredged sand. Environmental concerns were: protection of sea turtle nests and two protected forging shorebirds; the small sand-colored, sparrow-sized, piping plover and the reddish, medium-sized Red Knot, along with other seabirds.
