Dear Georgia stakeholders and friends of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association (AIWA),
As everyone knows, the AIWA has been focused on the maintenance dredging of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway at Jekyll Creek, Georgia and the placement of material in a beneficial use project for over two years. Today, we received great news as those efforts and the heavy lifting of many others has led to an upcoming project- The Jekyll Creek Beneficial Use project has been officially awarded to Cottrell Contracting Corporation. This project will involve the dredging of material from Jekyll Creek and placing the material in a thin-layer on the northern end of Jekyll creek for marsh restoration and enhancement, and also in a nearby deep hole.
Although a schedule is not yet available as the contract was just signed, everyone wants to move quickly so I am hopeful that they will be starting in 30-45 days. I am happy to answer any questions you might have and want to thank you for your ongoing support, and for some of you, your direct support of this effort.
All the best and congratulations to all of us.
Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association
