US Army Corps of Engineers-Back 26 August 2019
The benefits which reasonably may be expected to accrue from the work must be balance against its reasonably foreseeable detriments. The Corps of Engineers is soliciting comments from the public on the following activity:
Perform ten-year maintenance dredging of the following waterways within the Little Egg Harbor/Tuckerton Bay watershed, identified as Thompson's Creek, Paradise Cove Lagoons, Tuckerton Beach Lagoons, Tuckerton Creek, and Tuckerton Creek Lagoons. Maintenance dredging of these creeks and lagoons were last performed in the 1960s. All resultant dredged material, estimated to total approximately 77,500-cubic yards of silt and sand, would be transported to temporary upland disposal sites for dewatering; with subsequent permanent upland offsite disposal. Return water from the temporary upland disposal sites is proposed
Comments on the proposed work should be submitted, in writing, within 30 days. Please READ THE ATTACHED DOCUMENTION FOR ADDITION INFORMATION as well as contact info.
