Abstract: The purpose of this project is to maintain the Barnegat Inlet Federal Navigation Channel to authorized depth by dredging sand from the shoaled portions of the channel and to use the material beneficially with a nearshore placement to support the shore protection project along Long Beach Island. This Barnegat Inlet project and the Section 1122 program in the Philadelphia District USACE in general also seek to develop innovative approaches for the beneficial use of dredged material and potential habitat creation/restoration in Barnegat Bay that will inform and support beneficial use projects in the future and keep sediments in the natural system. There is considerable opportunity within the sediment-rich Barnegat Inlet complex to use dredged sediments from state and federal channels for beneficial use through placement on adjacent beaches, for marsh enhancement, and island creation. Such projects would improve overall coastal system resilience within the Barnegat Inlet region and other regions of New Jersey.
