Port of Charlottetown Dredging Plans Introduced

The Canadian Port of Charlottetown has applied for federal and provincial funding to remove silt and other materials from the harbor, informs the CBC/Radio-Canada.

The port plans to conduct this dredging scheme in order to eventually extend the harbor’s berth to accommodate two cruise ships at the same time.

Corryn Clemence, the port’s business development manager, explained that dredging would involve removing 5,000 cubic meters of silt, sand and clay in the south corner of the berth.

The manager added that this dredging work is part of a larger project to extend the south end of the berth.

According to CBC, Clemence expects that this phase of the project to begin in late November at an estimated cost of $12 million.

Clemence also said that being able to accommodate two cruise ships at the same time is necessary given the growth of cruise visits to the harbor.
