Neumann Contractors have once again been engaged by the Gold Coast City Council to undertake the dredging of Currumbin Creek for 2015. These works are part of a 4-6 year contract with the Gold Coast City Council for dredging and beach nourishment works at both Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creeks.
Neumann Contractors have undertaken the dredging works in Currumbin Creek for many years now, and the works are an integral part of the Gold Coast City Council's program to maintain and replenish the sand on Gold Coast beaches. This year approximately 40,000m3 of clean sand was dredged from the Currumbin Creek to replenish the sand on Palm Beach. The sand is pumped overland and released on Palm Beach.
The Nu Compact, a 300mm Cutter Suction Dredge, a land based booster pump and up to 1.2km of pipeline were used to complete the works.
