Homer Harbor Channel Dredging Underway

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, with the help from contractors, has begun dredging operations at the Homer Harbor entrance channel.

An estimated 12,000 cubic yards of material will be removed from the basin in order to comply with the Rivers and Harbors Act which mandates the basin’s least feet of depth. The dredging is being conducted with a hydraulic cutterhead and pipeline suction dredge.

Currently, this annual dredging operation maintains a depth of minus 20 feet in the entrance channel. The project extends the fishing season an extra four months each year and is an integral part of Homer’s economy.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers navigation mission is to provide safe, reliable, efficient, effective and environmentally sustainable waterborne transportation systems for movement of commerce, national security needs and recreation. Dredging occurs annually at Anchorage, Dillingham, Homer, Ninilchik and Nome.
