The Borough of Stone Harbor has just released an update on the Stone Harbor Maintenance Dredging Scheme for January 2016.
The dredging project is on standby until complications with the dredging and dewatering of the dredged material can be resolved.
The material that was removed from the North Basin is contained within the geotextile tubes on the marina parking lot and is slowly dewatering.
The Borough is working with the contractor, Sevenson Environmental Services of Niagra, New York, to evaluate modifications to increase the dewatering rate for current and future materials.
“Once dredging resumes, an updated basin schedule will be provided. We anticipate dredging at least one more basin during this phase of the contract,” the Borough said.
Phase 1 will be completed by March 31 at which time the contractor will have demobilized from the site and restored the marina to its pre-existing conditions.
