The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Jacksonville District (Corps) will hold an Industry Day for the Maintenance Dredging Projects at Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Georgia on Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Prudential Building, 701 San Marco Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32207.
The purpose of this event is to re-introduce the Dredging Industry to the Maintenance Dredging Projects at Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Georgia. Additionally this event will provide an opportunity to not only discuss the forthcoming requirements, but openly discuss project challenges and potential acquisition strategies which will increase competition.
- Kings Bay Entrance Channel: Kings Bay Entrance Channel, which is located in the St. Mary’s River and Cumberland Sound at the Georgia-Florida boundary, has a performance which typically commences in December and concludes no later than March 31st. This requirement consists of maintenance dredging of portions of the Kings Bay Entrance and Inner Channels to a specified required depth. This combined project, referred to as Kings Bay Entrance Channel, requires excavated material be distributed among the North Beach Disposal Area (D/A-NB), the Fernandina Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS) (D/A-O) and the Fernandina Nearshore Disposal Area (D/A-N); as such U.S. Coast Guard Certification is required. Incidental work associated with the Entrance Channel includes turbidity monitoring, environmental species monitoring, vibration monitoring and sea turtle non-capture trawling.
- Kings Bay Inner Channel: Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base is located near St. Mary’s, Camden County, Georgia or five miles north of the Georgia/Florida border and 28 miles north of the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX). Water access to the Subase is approximately 10 nautical miles from the Atlantic Ocean through the confluence of the St. Mary’s and Amelia Rivers at Cumberland Sound and along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW). The channel connecting the inshore waterways to the Subase is known as Kings Bay Inner Channel (KBIC) and is approximately 8.6 nautical miles west of the mouth of the St. Mary’s Entrance (River Stations 00+000 to 48+250). This requirement is typically performed from late Spring to early Summer and consists of maintenance dredging of portions of the Kings Bay Inner Channel and placing excavated material at Disposal Area Crab Island (D/A-C). NOTE: Previous Inner Channel projects have included maintenance dredging of Marine Corps Support Facility – Blount Island, which is located approximately 8.0 miles northeast of downtown Jacksonville, Florida and 9 miles west of the mouth of the St. Johns River. The disposal area for this feature of work is Dayson Island DMMA (D/A-D). Incidental work associated with both the Inner Channel and Blount Island features of work include turbidity monitoring, environmental species monitoring and bird monitoring.
- The NAICS code assigned to this work is 237990 – Other Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction.
