Addition of Armourstone Protection at Disposal Site DS2, Shippagan, Gloucester County, New Brunswick

In 2020-2021, dredged material from Phase A dredging at Shippagan Gully was used at disposal at sea site DS2 to reconstruct the end of the site along the Chiasson Barrier Spit shoreline, widen and reinforce the entire length of the spit on the inside, and widen the beaches on the inside portion of the spit. Shoreline protection at DS2 is now required to reduce erosion from tidal currents and waves. The proposed project will consist of the placement of armourstone and reworking existing material along the entire length of the channel side and a portion of the inside of the DS2 site along the Chiasson Barrier Spit shoreline.
