Beach Project Delayed Due to Impending Gulf of Mexico Tropical Depression Nine
Posted Date:

Norfolk Dredging Company temporarily stopped New Pass dredging and sand placement operations in anticipation of impacts from Tropical Depression Nine currently in the Gulf of Mexico.

August 29, 2016 | Norfolk Dredging Company (NDC) has temporarily stopped dredging and sand placement operations in New Pass in anticipation of impacts from Tropical Depression Nine currently in the Gulf of Mexico. NDC is in the process of relocating the dredge Pullen out of harm’s way to safe harbor in Tampa Bay and securing beach equipment and pipeline on the beach.  The dredge will re-mobilize to Longboat Key late this week when weather conditions improve.

Open water dredging operations present a special challenge when high waves and winds are forecast.  For safety reasons for its crew and Longboat Key residents alike these measures must be undertaken.  NDC staff will remain on the beach 24/7 to insure equipment on the beach remains safely secured.
