Carnival Bayou and Snug Harbor First Up for Dredging

first_imgBoats sit high and dry at low tide on Snug Harbor in Ocean City, NJ.City Council will vote Thursday (April 23) to advertise for bids from contractors who can dredge Ocean City’s shallow lagoons.The proposed specifications call for estimates on completing work at Carnival Bayou (the lagoon between 16th and 17th streets) and at Snug Harbor (the lagoon between Eighth Street and W. Revere Place near Ninth Street).The estimated dredging calls for the removal of 60,200 cubic yards of material, 44,200 from Carnival Bayou and 16,000 from Snug Harbor.The work would mark the continuation of dredging for the first time since 2012, when all work stopped as the only approved disposal site was filled to capacity.The city approved a $2.7 million contract for a company to haul material away from that site. Up to 50,000 cubic yards from the new dredging could be deposited there.A new site near the Route 52 causeway could accommodate 7,000 cubic yards.The bid specifications ask for contractors to provide an alternate price for removing material from the Route 52 site to make more room.Thursday’s meeting is open to the public and starts at 7 p.m. on the third floor of City Hall.last_img
