The Port Hope harbour dredging may even begin this mont, according to northumberlandtoday.com.
Karen Sharpe, the Parks, Recreation and Culture director, said: â€žAs soon as they get the go-ahead from the Ganaraska Regional Conservation Authority, theyâ€™ll get underway.â€ś
Approximately 1,500 cubic metres of sediment will be excavated to create a channel with a minimum depth of three metres along the south end of the harbourâ€™s west wall – approximately 80 metres long.
Sharpe says if all goes well, dredging will begin the end of this month or early June, and once itâ€™s piled on the beach, test samples will be taken and sent off for analysis.
This process can take about two weeks, she said.
