Barnstable County to Purchase New Dredger

The Barnstable County Commissioners introduced a plan for the purchase of a second dredging machine.

They are trying to include a $2 million bond authorization for the realization of this project, reports barnstablepatriot.com.

The Barnstable County currently owns The Codfish, an Ellicott® Series 670 “DRAGON®” Dredger, 14-inch hydraulic cutterhead pipeline dredging machine.

Regarding this plan, County Administrator Mark Zielinski, stated: “There will certainly be a period of time where we will have two operating dredgers,” and added that the second dredger is expected to be of similar size as The Codfish.
