Corps awards contract to dredge Hampton Harbor Federal navigation project in Seabrook, Hampton

Published Oct. 11, 2019

CONCORD, Mass. Maintenance dredging of the Hampton Harbor Federal navigation project in Seabrook and Hampton, New Hampshire will be completed under the terms of a $4,452,937.50 contract issued recently by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District. Work will be accomplished by H&L Contracting, LLC of Bay Shore, New York.


Dredging and disposal operations are anticipated to take about 4 to 5 months to complete and will occur between Oct. 15, 2019 and March 1, 2020. The contract was awarded on Sept. 12, 2019.


Approximately 150,000 cubic yards of sandy material will be hydraulically dredged from the 8-foot deep entrance channel, 8-foot deep Hampton channel, 8-foot deep cross channel, 8-foot deep Hampton anchorage, 6-foot deep Hampton anchorage, 8-foot deep Seabrook channel, and 8-foot deep Seabrook anchorage with the material pumped onto adjacent beaches in Hampton and Seabrook, N.H., according to Project Manager Ms. Coral Siligato, of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Massachusetts.


An optional bid item is included in the contract to hydraulically dredge approximately 2,500 cubic yards of sandy material from the state anchorage in Hampton with placement on Hampton State Beach.


This work will allow project users to maintain safe navigation in Hampton Harbor. Natural shoaling processes have reduced available depths to as little as 1.0 foot in the 8-foot MLLW channel in Seabrook and 8-foot MLLW anchorage in Hampton, as little as 2.5 feet in the 8-foot Seabrook Anchorage, and approximately 4.0 feet in the 8-foot MLLW cross channel, 6-foot MLLW Hampton Anchorage and 6-foot state of New Hampshire Anchorage making navigation hazardous or impossible at lower stages of the tide.


The dredging project will be managed by the Corps under the supervision of a Corps’ Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.
