The applicant, City of Atlantic City, has requested Department of the Army (DA) authorization to perform ten (10)-year maintenance dredging of thirteen (13) city waterways, with the proposed “city-wide” maintenance dredging program targeting substantial shoaling that has built up over the last century, including recent sediment deposited by Superstorm Sandy and Winter Storm Jonas. The proposed locations are as follows: Clam Creek portion of the Absecon Inlet Federal Navigation Channel, Farley’s Marina, Gardiners Basin, Snug Harbor, Delta Basin, Kammerman’s Marina, U.S. Coast Guard/New Jersey State Police Marina, Penrose Canal, Venice Lagoon, Bader Field Lagoon, Chelsea Harbor, Fenton Place Lagoon, and Ventnor Lagoon. The stated purpose of this project is to maintain safe navigational depths for transiting emergency, commercial, and recreational vessels; and restore a manmade subaqueous borrow pit feature formed by historical sand mining activities. More details are available in the "Public Notice & Plan Details" document. Public comments are requested by Jan. 19, 2022.
