Dredging & Beach Nourishment

Dredging & Dock Completion

To complete this project, it required dredging to create depth for the floating dock. This was done with a piece of small-scale equipment, which gave our crews the ability to work in a shallow environment. This process included the dredge material to be loaded into one-yard bags and offloaded by Allen Harbor Marine’s forklift, and then loaded into a dump truck. The dock was built with IPE decking. The homeowner chose to apply a clear stain to bring out the beauty of the wood and it looks amazing.

Seapuit River Dredging Project

Location: Osterville, MA

Project Completion: December, 2015

Details: Dredging of approximately 1000 CY of material from the Seapuit River in Osterville. The sandy material was used to nourish the beach and dune system adjacent to the river. All of the equipment had to be mobilized by barge. The project was completed in under 1 week. Throughout the winter months the sand was able to protect the beach from further erosion. Mechanical dredging methods were used to dig the river to -8′ MLW. See a write up on the project here: http://www.dredgingtoday.com/2016/02/12/beacon-marine-osterville-dredging-scheme-wrapped-up/
