US: emergency dredging gets under way at Rudee Inlet

News // November 13, 2012

Dredging operations got under way at Rudee Inlet earlier this week due to significant shoaling as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

According to officials with the US Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Virginia Beach requested the US Army Corps of Engineers to begin emergency dredging.

Rudee Inlet had shoaled significantly following the hurricane, hurting navigation around the area.

A side-cast dredge Merritt is being used to remove an estimated 9,000 cubic yards of sand from the coast of Virginia Beach.
