St. Augustine dredging begins

Oct 28, 2013 by Guest Writer

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Jacksonville has begun dredging operations within the St. Augustine Inlet Federal Channel.



About 120,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand will be dredged from the channel and placed on the beach within Anastasia State Park. This dredging will restore the inlet down to the 16-foot authorized depth.



The dredging operation is being funded with money by the U.S. government to relieve impacts of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.



Questions about this operation can be directed to Shelley Trulock, project manager, at +1 904-232-3292.
