USA: Money Secured for Chautauqua County Dredging

Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I-Olean) said that critically-needed dredging projects in Chautauqua County will be able to go forward thanks to $300,000 she has secured.

With the county’s harbors and waterways in tremendous need of dredging right now, this grant is great news for taxpayers and residents. The current condition of our harbors and waterways has contributed to damaging flooding and related problems. This funding lifts a significant burden from local taxpayers, who will not have to bear the brunt of the costs yet will still be able to see these important projects completed. The importance of our harbors and waterways to tourism and recreation is also immense. Dredging will provide a valuable economic boost due to the increased tourism, boating, and fishing that will result along the Lake Erie waterfront,” said Senator Young.

The county’s harbors and waterways generate millions of dollars every year in economic activity, translating into thousands of local jobs and related development.

The $300,000 of funding secured by Senator Young will be evenly split between Barcelona Harbor in Westfield, the Town of Hanover, and the City of Dunkirk, with each receiving $100,000 for their dredging projects.
