Western Marine's dredging crane scrapes up sediment and hard blue clay from South Harbor and releases the clamshell claw into the collection barge. The sound echoes in the harbor.

The South Harbor dredge project commenced last winter and resumed in October after being suspended for around seven months due to environmental regulations. The project is expected to conclude at the end of the year.
