North Cove Dredging Approved

The State Bond Commission has approved $7.5 million for the dredging of North Cove on the Connecticut River.

The funding, from the state’s Grants-In-Aid program, will go toward improvements to ports and marinas, including dredging and navigational direction.

This is a smart investment for our town,” said Rep. Devin Carney, R-Old Saybrook. “Dredging the North Cove will keep property values up and protect our natural resources.”

The proposed dredging will alleviate siltation issues due to reduced tidal flushing, which occurs when the openings to the river have been reduced by man-made structures.

Both state senators whose districts include a portion of Old Saybrook applauded the project. Sen. Art Linares, R-Westbrook, said the dredging project will create construction jobs and provide a lasting benefit to the region.

Sen. Paul Formica, R-East Lyme, added that the dredging should be done in a way that preserves ecological balance while also providing for safe recreational boating.
