USA: Allen Harbor Dredging Project Moves Ahead
6 scow loads of spoil left the Allen Harbor last week. To date 24 loads for a total of 14,400 cubic yards of spoil have left the harbor.
Plans are to start dredging Allen Harbor Marine portions next week providing the Yacht Club soundings come back positive that the job is done there.
Bad weather the rest of this week will probably preclude any dredging this week. Next week we are expecting the county dredge to mobilize to begin the mooring field. This necessitates us moving our docks to another place in the harbor preferably up the creek so not to interfere with the dredging.
The Yacht Club docks will be put back in place next week, but not hooked up. Our extension for the dredge permit goes in at the end of the year hoping to extend at least to the middle of February. The spoil from the county dredge will be placed on Earle Road and Pleasant Street beach parking lots to de-water before being hauled away to the old Harwich Landfill.
