Hen’s Cove Dredging and Beach Nourishment

BSC Group worked with the Town of Bourne, Department of Environmental Protection, Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act Program, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) to complete a 27,000-cubic yard maintenance dredge and beach nourishment project at Hen Cove in Bourne, MA. An important aspect of the project was incorporating decades of USACOE and Marine Fisheries recommendations which required that an extensive fin and shellfish survey, salt marsh inventory and benthic organism evaluation be compiled as part of the permitting process.

This project was the 5th major dredging and beach nourishment completed in the Buzzards Bay Estuary by BSC in the past 25 years.
