The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District, has just released this beautiful photo of the first load of dredged material from the Charleston Harbor Post 45 Deepening Project’s Lower Harbor contract.

The material, dredged by Norfolk Dredging Company, is being taken to the offshore dredge material disposal site.

The approximately $124 million contract covers the Lower Harbor to Wando Welch Terminal portion of the project and involves the removal of more than 11 million cubic yards of material.

The work that will be completed under this contract, along with the contracts already underway in the Entrance Channel, will complete a full and useable segment from the ocean to the South Carolina Ports Authority’s Wando Welch Terminal.
