Humboldt Bay Harbor District Buys Dredger (USA)

The Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District (HBHRCD) Commissioners voted unanimously at its April 24 meeting to purchase the 70-foot dredging vessel for $950,000.

The entire cost of the cutter-head dredge is being paid for by Pacific Gas & Electric. As part of the decommissioning of its Humboldt Bay Nuclear Power Plant, PG&E gave the district $2 million to buy the vessel and dredge Fisherman’s Channel, located adjacent to the power plant in King Salmon.

HBHRCD Chief Executive Officer Jack Crider said the dredger will be used about four months out of the year. The rest of the time it will be dry docked in Fields Landing.
