Canada: Pangnirtung Harbor Dredging Resumes

Pangnirtung Harbor Dredging Resumes

The development work is underway once again on the small-craft harbor in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, according to the CBCnews.

John Davidson, who is heading up the project for Public Works and Government Services Canada, said: “The dredging should be done in a few weeks and then crews will build the wharf.”

The fixed wharf is a sheet-steel pile wharf, and that’ll probably take us to the end of September,” he said. “Hopefully at that point in time everything is wrapped up and all deficiencies are completed and the channel and outer basin are in good shape.”

This dredging project is estimated to cost about $17 million.
