Canada: Dredging on Glace Bay Harbour Moves Ahead
According to Herb Nash, the chair of the Glace Bay Harbour Association, the harbor dredging project is progressing very well.
He stated that the contractor, J&T Van Zutphen of Port Hood, removed a lot of the material out of the harbour so far, and added: “They are doing what they can reach from the sides first.”
This 12-week dredging program started on January 8, reports capebretonpost.com.
After the dredging work has been wrapped up, a sound test will be conducted to ensure the harbour is 13-14 feet deep along the sides and 10 feet deep in the middle, the officials with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans small craft harbours branch said.
