USA: Dredging on Oak Bluffs Harbor About to Begin

Oak Bluffs harbor management advisory committee is moving forward with significant projects to improve the port.

Long-scheduled dredging of the harbor channel is expected to begin this week, according to

The dredge Currituck, which travels the East Coast working on a number of harbor entrances and channels each year, will clear the channel of shifting sand to a depth of 10 feet at mean low water.

Town officials are also moving forward with a plan to install and operate a town-owned fueling facility for boats.

Fuel service is something boaters expect in a fully functioning harbor,” said John Breckenridge, chairman of the harbor management advisory committee.
