Seagrass Enhancement Project in North Carolina Underway

Contracted by the State of North Carolina Department of Transportation(NCDOT), CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) is conducting a novel seagrass enhancement project by manipulating wind wave energy to provide new and sustained seagrass acreage in anticipation of unavoidable impacts, creating essentially an open-water “living shoreline,” although in the absence of an actual shore. The Bonner Bridge, which connects Hatteras and Bodie islands at the Oregon Inlet—a lifeline for tourism and tropical storm evacuation of the North Carolina outer banks—has reached its engineering limits and is being replaced. The potential seagrass impact estimated from the new bridge installation required the recovery of no less than 1.28 acres of highly productive seagrasses, interspersed with widgeon grass. In January, Cape Dredging Company, under contract to CSA, completed installation of the Reefmaker wave attenuation units in coordination with the manufacturer, Atlantic Reefmaker.

CSA Surveyor Arrives in St. Croix

CSA survey boat arrives in St Croix

CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), in cooperation with American Vibracore Services (AVS), has transported their 30-ft survey vessel, the CSA Surveyor, to St. Croix to perform a subbottom and side-scan sonar survey for a local facility. 

The custom-built aluminum catamaran is capable of a variety of geophysical work, including multibeam, single-beam, magnetometer, and video inspection via remotely operated vehicle (ROV) or towed video systems.  What sets the CSA Surveyor apart is its 1,000+ m coaxial cable, allowing it to do deepwater work from a small platform, thus providing significant cost savings.  

The vessel will remain in St. Croix for a short duration after its current survey is complete and will be available for hire.  This is a great opportunity for projects in the surrounding area to conduct any required geophysical or hydrographic services, taking advantage of this cost effective vessel currently mobilized in St. Croix.
