USA: Dredging Plans for New Haven and Norwalk Harbors Presented
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, is issuing a pre-solicitation notice for federal maintenance dredging of New Haven and Norwalk Harbors.
The proposed work consists of maintenance dredging of about 810,000 cubic yards of sediment from the 35-foot channel and 35-foot turning basin in New Haven Harbor, and about 150,000 cubic yards of sediment from the 12-foot channel in Norwalk Harbor.
The dredged material will be removed using a mechanical dredge and scows. Disposal of this material will be at the Central Long Island Sound Disposal Site (CLISDS), about 6 miles south from New Haven Harbor and about 35 miles east from Norwalk Harbor.
Dredging and disposal windows are from October 1 to January 31 for Norwalk, and October 1 to April 30 for New Haven.
The estimated value of this development project is between $10 mln and $15 mln.
