Corps Announces Dredging Plans for Lake Ontario Harbors (USA)
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, seeks sources for a project to dredge multiple shallow draft harbors on Lake Ontario to authorized depth. Multiple harbors will be included in a single contract.
Dredged material will be placed in authorized open lake or near-shore placement areas as required for each harbor. The Contractor shall have equipment needed to work within relatively shallow channel depths and transport/place material at the required placement sites.
The disposal location (open lake or near shore) is provided with the approximate distance from the Federal channel.
Work will likely begin in May 2014 and proceed until all dredging is completed (June/July 2014).
Anticipated quantities for the noted harbors are as follows:
1.) Little Sodus 35,000 CY;
2.) Irondequoit 15,000 CY;
3.) Oak Orchard 15,000 CY;
4.) Olcott 15,000 CY;
5.) Wilson 15,000 CY.
