The Ingenuity began the maintenance dredging of the Apalachicola Bay channel in mid December, 2018. The material was pumped onto “Bird Island” at the north end of the bay channel. As the dredge advanced away from the island, line lengths eventually reached nearly 2 miles.
By the middle of the first quarter, the dredge had completed the landfill portion and was completing the work using the spill barge in the overboard areas.
By mid March the Ingenuity was starting its second Florida assignment in the GIWW just to the northeast of Panama City, FL. The dredged material is being placed into an overboard placment area with the spillbarge at this site also. The work will be completed in early April.
