Port lets dredging contract, clearing way for wood pellets
Published: May 15,2013
PASCAGOULA — Port of Pascagoula commissioners have approved a $1.5-million dredging project to prepare a Bayou Casotte berth for a specialized wood pellet exporting facility.
The board awarded the $1.47 million contract to C. F. Bean, LLC for the dredging, testing, transporting and disposing of about 45,000 cubic yards of silts around Terminals E and F.
Port director Mark McAndrews tells The Mississippi Press the contract is higher than typical because there is a chance of contaminants that will need special handling.
Any contaminated sediments will be trucked to the MacLand Disposal Center, a certified landfill, and any clean materials will be placed at the former International Paper Co. mill site.
The dredging work is being funded through the port’s harbor maintenance fund.
