Dredging and Dredged Material Management for the Jacksonville Shipyards Redevelopment Project
Client: City of Jacksonville Location: Jacksonville, Florida, USA Challenge. Design and permitting of dredging and dredged material management of potentially contaminated sediments from existing basins of former industrial site Solution. As part of providing risk assessment, permitting, engineering design, and groundwater modeling services for the environmental remediation of the City of Jacksonville’s Shipyards site, INTERA is leading the assessment of submerged land, which includes the conceptual design of dredging to allow ship mooring that can accommodate a United States Navy decommissioned 1960s era destroyer and other vessels. Our efforts have included evaluating dredged material management options for handling contaminants in the sediment, preparing cost estimates, and obtaining the required federal and state dredge/fill permits. The remediation efforts are preparing the site, located downtown near EverBank Field (home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars), for redevelopment.
