Altona Safe Harbour Dredging Begins

The Hobsons Bay City Council has commenced the Altona Safe Harbour dredging program.

Dredging works on the harbour access channel and along the breakwaters will be carried out by a cutter suction dredge. Dredged material is to be deposited for beach renourishment to the foreshore area at the Seaholme Foreshore intertidal zone opposite Burns Reserve.

On-water plant, equipment or potential hazards to navigation will be marked as per IALA standards. Mariners are advised to exercise caution and proceed at a safe speed when navigating in the area and observe the displayed day marks on the dredge.
