    Army Corps' Arthur Kill Channel Deepening: Part of a More Extensive 50 foot NY/NJ Harbor Deepening Project

    Blasting work being performed in the Arthur Kill Channel between Elizabeth, New Jersey and the New York Container Terminal, Staten Island, New York. Areas of the channel contain solid bedrock which requires precision controlled, safe and staggered detonations underwater to fracture the rock for removal. The deepening of the Arthur Kill will be the final milestone achieved in the overall 50 foot Harbor Deepening Project. Next will be the 40 foot channel deepening of the Arthur Kill Channel leading to an oil refinery in Linden, New Jersey.
