    Dredged Hole #86 Sample Locations

Subaqueous borrow pits within the 4 coastal county bay waters (dredged holes) are potential locations for restoring  degraded aquatic habitat by placing sediment dredged from navigation channels and lagoons.  The CRC is leading a team to conduct an environmental assessment of a dredged hole behind Absecon Island.  The study team  is collecting datasets on fisheries, benthic fauna, sediment, and water quality to determine the submerged habitat status and potential fisheries usage.
