South Harbor dredging awaits study results


Glo Wollen

A feasibility study is currently underway to determine if the United States Army Corps of Engineers will dredge South Harbor and allow smoother access.

Some vessels are scraping and hitting the bottom of the harbor, especially during low tides, when they enter South Harbor, said harbormaster Glorianne Wollen; as a result, vessels are having trouble entering the harbor. The USACE was contacted and agreed to conduct a feasibility study, which will determine the problem in the harbor and possible solutions to it, as well as total costs and deposit locations for dredged spoils, said Wollen.
