UK: PHC Announce Dredging at Poole Harbour

Poole Harbour dredging

Poole Harbour Commissioners (PHC) have announced that dredging operations are to be carried out at two sites within the Poole Harbour Commissioners area of jurisdiction.

Dredging will commence on or about 1st July 2013 and may be a 24 hour operation, seven days a week depending on permissions being granted.

The dredged material will be used beneficially at the RNLI college site where civil engineering works are taking place.

The Jenkins Marine backhoe dredger Doreen Dorward will be dredging in the vicinity of either Aunt Betty buoy, or No.10 buoy.

Hopper barges Nab and Needles will be transporting the dredged material through both the Poole Bridge and the Twin Sails bridge to berth at the RNLI site in Holes Bay, possibly with the assistance of a workboat. All vessels will display day and night signals as appropriate.

The operation is expected to take approximately three months to complete.
