FISHING CREEK SOUTH JETTY REHAB AND MAINTENANCE DREDGING
Industry: Publicly Funded
Remediation and Stone Jetty Improvements in a Dynamic Aquatic Environment
This project combines dredging and stone jetty improvements for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Chesapeake Beach, MD.
White Lake Dock & Dredge, Inc. (WLDD), a division of ENTACT, LLC, hydraulically dredged and conveyed more than 30,000 cubic yards of sediment from inner and outer harbors into a confined disposal facility (CDF). We also performed grading work and replaced the weir box outlet control structures inside the CDF.
After the dredging, WLDD initiated jetty rock revetment work to repair 925 feet of breakwater with more than 6,000 tons of stone. Stone repairs include geotextile placement, underlayer stone, and a cover with armor stone weighing up to 2.8 tons, all performed in a shallow tidal environment.
