Honeymoon Island

Project involved dredging approximately 151,010cy of beach compatible material from two barrow areas within the vicinity of Hurricane Pass. This material was used to renourish parts of the northern portion of Honeymoon Island state park.

Material was hydraulically pumped 24hrs a day at distances upwards of 9000ft from the barrow area to the beach fill template. The dredge used in performing dredging operation was the Brittyn B an 18" Ellicott 1270 cutterhead dredge.

In addition to the placement of beach compatible, we removed several hazardous objects from the beach, planted 10,000 sea oats, raked and tilled the beach upwards of 36" deep.

During the course of this project we maintained manatee watch protocols, turbidity monitoring, as well as, abided by daily sea turtle and seabird monitoring.
