A Stone Harbor dredging project aimed at removing about 100,000 cubic yards of silt from the borough’s back bays has been shut down by the state after two geotubes failed recently at the Stone Harbor marina parking lot, releasing mud which seeped through bulkhead openings and into the North Basin, officials said.

This is the second spill during the $10 million project. Except for limited dredging in the North Basin and Shelter Haven Basin, the project is suspended pending a meeting between state and Stone Harbor officials.

Mayor Suzanne Walters was notified in a letter dated March 23 from the state Department of Environmental Protection that the borough’s waterfront development permit had been suspended by the DEP’s Office of Dredging and Sediment Technology.
