Tankerton Jetty Dredging Scheme Completed

Maintenance dredging operations at the Tankerton Jetty and channel areas are now completed, according to the Parks Victoria latest Notice to Mariners.

The material dredged during this project was deposited for beach renourishment directly east of the jetty.

All on-water plant, equipment or potential hazards to navigation have been removed, Parks Victoria stated.

This dredging scheme is part of Parks Victoria’s ongoing dredging program to ensure the continuation of safe boating access within Port Phillip and Western Port.

Acting Senior Manager, Local Ports & Waterways, Andrew Kelly, said that the freshly dredged material contained organic material, mostly seaweed, which gives the sand a dark color and odor.

“While the dredged sand may look and smell unpleasant when it first comes out of the water, after a few days of exposure to the air and sun, the sand will bleach to its normal color and lose the odor,” Mr Kelly said.

Dredging at Tankerton Jetty was last carried out in December 2012.
