The applicant proposes to perform hydraulic dredging and send the dredged material via pipeline to the Shaw Island Dredge Disposal Site. Dredging would occur in the Boroughs of Wildwood Crest and Wildwood, Cape May County, New Jersey; Shaw Island Dredge Disposal Site is located in Lower Township, Cape May County, New Jersey. The site was last dredged in 2008 under a permit previously issued by this office under the above referenced file number. A maximum of 51,000 cubic yards of material, composed primarily of sand and fines, would be removed from approximately 12 acres of the waterway. The area would be dredged to a depth of 5 feet below mean low water, with a maximum of 1 foot over-dredge. The material would be pumped through a pipeline; that would be floated on the surface of the waterway except where it crosses Grassy Sound Channel. Additional details are available within the "Public Notice & Plan Details" document. Public comment deadline is on March 17, 2017.
