Calumet Harbor Dredging Moves Ahead

The Calumet Harbor dredging project started this week, on April 13th, the U.S. Coast Guard announced.

Roen Salvage Company, a Sturgeon Bay-based dredging contractor, is conducting the Calumet Harbor dredging operations. The completion of this very important dredging project is scheduled for May 11th, 2015.

The Calumet Harbor and River navigation project is a vital part of the regional economy. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) regularly performs maintenance dredging to provide sufficient depths for safe and efficient navigation within Calumet Harbor and River.

Calumet Harbor and River is located on Lake Michigan on the far south side of Chicago, at the Illinois-Indiana Border. The Federal channel is approximately 11 miles long and varies in width (from 3,200 feet in the approach channel to 200 feet in the river) and depth (from 29 feet in the approach channel to 27 feet in the river).
