Bourne Seeks Permit for Dredge, Beach Nourishment Work

KA_Bourne Scenic Park Bridge_041816027BOURNE – The town of Bourne is looking to complete a dredging project that would re-nourish three beaches.

Selectmen are seeking a permit for the work from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The project would see over 40,000 cubic yards of material dredged from Little Bay Channel, Pocasset Harbor and Pocasset River.

Material would then be used to renourish Monument Beach, Mashnee Island Causeway Beach and Barlows Landing Beach.

The project would use the Barnstable County Dredge to perform the work.

Material that is not suitable for beach nourishment will be used as daily cover at the Bourne Landfill.

The material dredged from Little Bay will be used to build up Monument Beach and Mashnee Island Causeway Beach. Barlows Landing Beach will be nourished with materials from Pocasset Harbor. Dredged material from the Pocasset River will be taken to the landfill.

A public notice for the project has been posted at the Corps website and can be found here.

The Army Corps is accepting public comment on the proposed project through May 19. Comments can be mailed to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, Regulatory Division (ATTN: Christine Renzoni), 696 Virginia Road, Concord, MA 01742-2571.

More information is available from Renzoni, the permit project manager, by phone at 978-318-8026 or toll free at 800-343-4789 or 800-362-4367 if calling from Massachusetts. She can also be emailed at
