USA: Allen Harbor Dredging Moves Forward
Steve Root of the Harwich Waterways Committee has announced an update on the Allen Harbor dredging program.
Presently the county dredge “Codfish” is working in the Herring River and putting the spoil in the form of a dyke at the Pleasant Road Beach in West Harwich.
A similar dyke will be made at Earle Road Beach and the county dredge will move to the mooring field portion of Allen Harbor and dredge up to put the spoil within these dykes. Meanwhile Burnham Associates with the large dredge will continue bucket by bucket to get close to Allen Harbor Marine.
Presently they are still using two scows, but may have the option of a third scow late in January, but this is not certain as the project it is on now is not complete.
