Iluka Harbor Dredging Begins

Maintenance dredging to remove the accumulated sediment from both the navigation channels and within the boat harbor has begun in the Iluka Boat Harbor.

The dredging areas are frequently used by commercial fishing boats and other commercial and recreational vessels. The area to be dredged within the boat harbor is within close proximity to several yacht and commercial vessel moorings and wharves and the Clarence River Fishermen’s Co-Op unloading wharf.

Works involve removing approximately 27,000m³ of marine sediment from the Iluka Boat Harbor and the approach channel up to a depth of -3.5m and pumping the material up to 2 km to a deposition area adjacent to Main Beach.

Dredge 12 (Nu Discovery), a land based booster pump and support vessels have been mobilized to site. The Nu Discovery is a new 250mm Cutter Suction Dredge ideally suited to this type of dredging working. It can be easily transported to remote sites, when dismantled the entire unit can be transported in 2 x 40′ open top shipping containers.
