Wilmington Annual Dredging Kicks Off

The Wilmington Harbor Annual Dredging Program on the Christina River in Delaware started yesterday and will last until September 20, 2015.

Involved in this project will be the dredger Essex along with support equipment, including tender boats Duke, Norfolk and Pusher 10.

All mariners are requested to stay clear of the dredger, booster, floating pipe, pontoon pipes, submerged pipelines, barges, derricks and operation wires around the dredger.

Operators of vessels of all types should be aware that the dredger and floating pipelines are held in place by cables, attached to anchors, some distance away from the equipment.

Buoys are attached to the anchors so that the anchors may be moved as the dredger advances and the location of the submerged pipelines are marked by buoys on either side of the channel.
