U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District’s, Lee Willis, assistant master, navigates the Hopper Dredge MURDEN during 24/7 dredging operations near Ocean City, Md., Sept 20, 2021. The USACE Baltimore District routinely receives services from the Wilmington District’s MURDEN or its sister ship CURRITUCK to Ocean City for routine dredging in and around the Inlet. The Baltimore District manages the Ocean City Inlet federal navigation channel and Assateague Bypass project while the Wilmington District staffs, trains, and equips these special-purposes dredges which work up and down the Atlantic and Gulf coasts dredging similar inlets or near-shore coast projects.
