Hudson Dredging Project Reaches Mohawk River

The New York State Canal Corporation has just released the Hudson River dredging update, advising that this week works will be in progress between the confluence of the Mohawk River and Lock C-8 in Fort Edward. 

The sixth and hopefully the final season of one the largest and most complex environmental dredging projects ever undertaken in the United States began last week, May 7th 2015.

 

Activities Planned for the Week of May 11, 2015:

  • Barge unloading operations immediately south of Lock C-8;
  • Barge operations immediately north of Lock C-5;
  • Barge operations in the vicinity of buoy Red 60;
  • Dredge operations between approximately buoy Red 10 and Red 14;
  • Dredge operations in vicinity of buoy Red 56;
  • Lighted Norwegian buoy indicating submerged pump outside the navigational channel located approximately 400’ north of buoy Green 55.

At the conclusion of this year’s work, approximately 3.3 million tons of dewatered sediment — 2.9 million cubic yards — will have been removed from the Upper Hudson River in a project that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has called a success and a national model.
