Indian River Marina Dredging Starts Soon

Maintenance dredging at the Indian River Marina basin within Delaware Seashore State Park is scheduled to begin Thursday, September 15th 2016.

The marina, operating under the auspices of Delaware State Parks, has been contacting affected slip holders this week about the dredging, providing information about temporary dock reassignment, dates that their boats will need to be moved, and emphasizing a tight window for the dredging project to be completed.

According to DNREC’s Divisions of Parks & Recreation and Watershed Stewardship, during the maintenance dredging project, dredge pipe will be marked with orange buoys every 25 to 50 feet, with the Division of Watershed Stewardship’s Shoreline & Waterway Management Section keeping a boat in the water to assist slip holders in navigating the area during dredging operations from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The pipe will be completely submerged and out of harm’s way during non-dredging hours and the marina will be navigable during those hours as well.

The Indian River Marina also announced this week that because of the dredging project, it will no longer accept transient reservations for the remainder of the 2016 boating season.
