Congressman Bill Keating has announced that a $300,000 award has been granted to Marshfield for the Green Harbor dredging project.
“Green Harbor is key to the economy and vitality of Marshfield and the entire South Shore,” said Representative Keating. “This funding is essential to protect and better prepare our community for the severe storms we have seen in the past few years. After the recent storm Juno that ravaged our coast, this money couldn’t come at a better time.”
“Marshfield’s Green Harbor is one of the most productive commercial ports in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and is a significant recreational boating resource for our entire region,” added Representative Jim Cantwell.
The Green Harbor dredging program is scheduled to begin this spring.
