Robbins Reef, New Jersey

In July 2011, Coastline Consulting, LLC contracted with AIS to provide monitoring services during dredging for the Robbins Reef Yacht Club in Bayonne, NJ. During this project, an inspector certified by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the NY/NJ District monitored the dredge activities for compliance with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Office of Dredging & Sediment Technology. The inspector was responsible for completing an initial inspection of the environmental bucket to ensure that it conformed to the permit requirements. The specialized bucket was necessary to reduce turbidity during digging. Once the bucket was verified, weekly site visits were completed to monitor operations as a way to ensure that the bucket was working properly. Weekly reports were sent to the EPA. The data were summarized by Coastline Consulting in a final report for submission to the permitting agencies.
