Maintenance Dredging of Two-Mile Approach Channel and Berth Area for Barge and Ship Access - Beneficial Use of Stabilized Dredged Material for Multiple Construction Uses - Construction of a full service rail transfer station for shipment of amended dredged material.
Clean Earth Dredging Technologies performed this comprehensive dredging and disposal project on behalf of a public/private partnership consisting of Hugo Neu Schnitzer East and the NJDOT Office of Maritime Resources. Prior to conducting maintenance dredging, processing and disposal, CEDT constructed a 7 acre dredged material processing facility and rail transfer station. The transfer station has been continuously operated by CEDT since construction. The 700,000 cubic yard project was made up of several phases and was the single largest dredging project performed by a private entity in the New York and New Jersey Harbor since upland disposal was mandated by the federal administration in 1997. Clean Earth provided comprehensive dredging, processing, transportation and beneficial use services for the project, including the movement of in excess of one million tons of stabilized dredged material to five different construction projects for a variety of beneficial uses including mine reclamation, brownfield redevelopment, and landfill capping and closure. Due to the phasing of the project, including multiple mobilization and demobilizations, the actual project duration was approximately 450 days.
