Rhyl Harbor Dredging Project Set for Next Week

Denbighshire County Council is due to start essential dredging works at Rhyl Harbor on Monday, 6 March.

“For public safety reasons, a number of parking spaces, sections of the boardwalk and quay walls along the dock will be closed off during the work which is expected to take approximately¬† three weeks,” the council said in its announcement.

Maintenance dredging of the harbor is required on a regular basis to ensure the required navigable depth for the safe passage of vessels and the continued success of the harbor.

The dredging will be done during low tide conditions using land based excavation plant.

This will minimize any potential contamination of water and reduce any disruption to existing harbor users, the council said.

The dredged material will be removed by road for recycling.
