The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, has introduced a plan for the Wethersfield Cove dredging program.
This development project, located within Wethersfield, CT approximately 5 miles south of Hartford, CT, will include removal of approximately 13,300 cubic yards of predominantly fine grain sand and silty material by mechanical dredger from the Wethersfield Cove navigation channel.
This channel is 60 feet wide, about 0.4 miles in length, and extends from Wethersfield Cove to the Connecticut River.
All dredging work should occur between December 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, to minimize impact to the natural resources in these areas.
The total cost of this contract is between $500,000 and $1 mln.
