Woods Hole Berth Dredging

Location: Falmouth, MA

Date: 2009

This project consisted of improvement dredging of the Entrance Channel to Great Harbor, deepening the channel to -25.0 feet MLLW. The improvement project required mechanical dredging and removal of 37,500 yd^3 of cobbles, gravel, sand, and silt. Material was disposed at the Rhode Island South Disposal Site and at the Near-Shore Holding Area at Menauhant Beach. Materials placed at near-shore disposal areas were re-handled and dredged by the Barnstable County Dredge and used to nourish Menauhant Beach.
