GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — The Berkeley County Government is giving an update on the dredging project underway at Bushy Park Landing near the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek.
Sharing new pictures of the work on Facebook, the county said the project is in full swing and dredging is expected to be completed in two to three weeks.
The county said divers are working at the site, cleaning out debris from the dredge area. The project is governed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
The project’s goals include mobilization, demobilization, dredging, transportation, disposal, and supervision for removing approximately 150,000 cubic yards of unclassified sediments within the dredge area.
The county said the sediment is being delivered to the Clouter Creek South Cell disposal site in North Charleston. The project’s total price tag is $5,036,000, and the county said funding comes from the 2014 and 2022 One Cent Sales Tax referendums.
