Two large clamshell dredges using 26 cy buckets performed the new work dredging. The material was loaded into barges and hydraulically unloaded at Hart-Miller Island upland disposal facility located 15 nautical miles from the dredge site. A total of 6 barges and 6 tugboats were used to transport the dredged material. WMI was successful in managing numerous pieces of equipment and modifying its dredging technique to efficiently accomplish the new work dredging project.
