The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu District, is ready to begin with the planned dredging operations of the Kahului Harbor, Maui, Hawaii.

The project, which is set to take place between April 10-25, will be carried out by the Corps’ trailing suction hopper dredge Essayons.

Dredged material, to be taken from the area during the works, will be disposed of at the Kahului Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS) as approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Initial estimates show that an estimated 94,000 to 156,000 cubic yards of material will be dredged during the works.

The scheme is part of a larger Hawai’i Commercial Harbor 2016 Maintenance Dredging project that includes maintenance dredging in Nawiliwili, Kalaeloa (Barbers Point), Hilo, Kahului and Honolulu harbors.

Kahului Harbor is on the northern coast of Maui and is the island’s only commercial port. The harbor consists of rubble mound breakwaters on its east and west sides, approximately 2,766 and 2,315 feet in length, respectively; an entrance channel 600 feet wide between the breakwaters; and a harbor basin 2,050 feet wide, 2,400 feet long at 35 feet deep.

The Kahului ODMDS is 5.6 nautical miles (10.4 kilometers) offshore of Maui. The site covers 1.03 square miles (2.66 square kilometers) in water 345 to 365 meters deep.
