Saquatucket Marina in Need of Dredging

The town of Harwich is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to dredge, reconstruct and reconfigure the existing Saquatucket Harbor marina in Harwich, Mass.

According to the proposal, the town is planing to reconstruct the existing Saquatucket Harbor marina, to maintenance dredge the boat basin while all piers and floats are removed, and to reconfigure the marina to add more berthing.

The work involves maintenance and improvement dredging of the town anchorage and Federal Navigation Project (FNP) anchorage and the complete reconstruction and reconfiguration of the marina’s float system, portions of which are proposed to occupy the 6-foot deep anchorage portion of the FNP.

The sandy dredged material is proposed for nourishment of nearby beach while the fine material will be disposed of at Rhode Island Sound Disposal Site (RISDS).

The proposed project consists of: demolition and disposal of all existing floating docks except for the existing pump-out dock; construction of an all-new floating dock marina; maintenance dredging to -6 feet MLW; and improvement dredging (deepening within existing footprint) to -8 feet MLW.

The total area of dredging is 244,100 square feet (5.5 acres), which includes the FNP and 3:1 side slopes. The total volume of dredging is 17,100 cubic yards.
