Dredging, Dredged Material Management, and the New Jersey Marine Transportation System

Join the NJDOT Bureau of Research on Tuesday, May 12th for a Lunchtime Tech Talk! event on Dredging, Dredged Material Management, and the New Jersey Marine Transportation System.

This event will feature W. Scott Douglas, Dredging Program Manager, Office of Maritime Resources, NJ Department of Transportation.

The NJDOT Office of Maritime Resources (OMR) is the lead for maintaining some 200 nautical miles of engineered waterways that provide safe navigation pathways to and from the State’s shore-based infrastructure, and provides dredged material management services for another 150 nautical miles of Federal waterway. These waterways are part of the NJ Marine Transportation System that supports the $50 billion industry comprising international and domestic freight, commercial fishing, recreational boating, travel and tourism, marine trades and ferries. Scott Douglas will discuss OMR’s responsibilities for planning, design, procurement and construction services, and coordinating the State’s waterway emergency response. Maintenance of NJ’s waterways involves specialized skills in underwater surveying, environmental sampling, monitoring and planning, permitting, maritime engineering and design. Mr. Douglas will focus on how OMR balances all of these needs through a team of subject matter experts, new trainees and outside consulting engineers. He will highlight several case studies of recent construction dredging projects

NJ PE and AICP credits are available. The event is free, but please RSVP ahead of time to reserve a seat to attend the event.
