Dredging Application for Nantuxent Channel Submitted
Comment by March 26, 2021


March 9, 2021

The Division's Bureau of Shellfisheries and Delaware Bay Shellfisheries Council, have requested Department of the Army authorization to perform ten (10)-year maintenance dredging of the Nantuxent Creek entrance channel to Delaware Bay, and a commercial vessel dockage area upstream within Nantuxent Creek. The Nantuxent Creek entrance channel to Delaware Bay, although historically utilized by transiting marine vessels, is being proposed as a new State Channel (#212), to be included in the State of New Jersey's maintenance dredging program managed by the NJ Department of Transportation's Office of Maritime Resources.

All resultant dredged material will be beneficially re-used within the Delaware Bay system to restore the eroded Money Island shoreline, enhance habitat, and improve ecological and community resilience.
