Craney Island Fees to Go Up

Norfolk District Engineer Col. Yvonne Prettyman-Beck announced on May 12 that tolls for placement of dredged material into Craney Island Dredged Material Area will be increased effective October 1, 2005.

New fees are $3.35 per cubic yard for deposit by scow in the rehandling basin, and $1.11 per cubic yard for direct deposit in the placement area.

The law establishing Craney Island requires that all expenditures be amortized over the project life as adopted into law by the 79th Congress, 2nd Session, May 6, 1946. It directed the Corps of Engineers “to assess a uniform toll charge for rehandling material at the disposal area to recover expenditures for construction, operation and maintenance of the disposal facilities.”

Col. Prettyman-Beck explained that the toll is for use of placement facilities only, and is in addition to any charge for inspection, supervision and surveys.

Users may call the Norfolk District’s Operations Support Section at 757-201-7645 for further information.
