Dredging of the Metedeconk River/Kettle Creek Complex Begins


New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials announced the start of navigation dredging in the Metedeconk River/Kettle Creek Complex, located in Ocean County. The dredging work is part of a $16 million project to continue returning State channels in Barnegat Bay to a state of good repair. This project includes dredging shoals in the following channels to their authorized depth: Upper Metedeconk River Channel (6ft.), Green Cove Channel (5ft), Beaver Damn Creek North and South (5ft.), Bay Head Channel, Winter Yacht Basin, Kettle Creek-Sailors Quay (5 ft.) and Kettle Creek (5ft.) with one foot of allowable over-dredge, respectively. These channels were severely impacted, creating shoals and limiting navigation, by Superstorm Sandy.
