New Bedford PCB Capping

Location: New Bedford, MA

Date: 2009

In 2009, Cashman dredged ~121,000 yd^3 of material using the Captain A.J. Fournier excavator dredge during the construction of the New Bedford Harbor Confined Aquatic Disposal (CAD) Cell No. 2. The new CAD cell was constructed for the relocation of PCB-contaminated sediments within the harbor. Sediment removed during the construction of the CAD cell was loaded into split-hull dump scows and transported to the approved Massachusetts Bay Disposal Site. Cashman-owned and -operated equipment utilized on the project included the A.J. Fournier dredge, tugboats, and three split-hull dump scows including the Eddie Carroll, the Mighty Quinn, and the Joe Verrochie.
