Ogdensburg Harbor in Need of Dredging

During a visit to St. Lawrence County, U.S. Senator Charles E Schumer yesterday pledged his support for critical federal funds to dredge the Ogdensburg Harbor.

Last dredged in 1984, the Ogdensburg Harbor is in desperate need of deepening, which will ease congestion, reduce shipping costs and unlock new business opportunities.

Schumer said that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is close to completing its feasibility study that was initiated in 2011 and the project’s next step will be final approval from the Assistant Secretary for Civil Works, making this a critical point in the long-awaited project.

Home to the only U.S. port on the St. Lawrence River, Ogdensburg Harbor plays a key role in the regional economy; keeping this harbor navigable and maintained will ensure that Northern New York and St. Lawrence Seaway will continue to see the benefits associated with Ogdensburg Harbor in the years to come.
