Menemsha Dredging Scheme About to Begin

A massive dredging vessel moved into place in Menemsha earlier this week, and is ready to complete a long-awaited project to clear the channel, the Martha’s Vineyard Times reports. 

The Army Corps of Engineers’ New England District recently announced that a new contractor, New York–based H & L Dredging, would take over for Ohio-based contractor J-Way Southern, which left the project unfinished.

The selected dredging firm started mobilizing their equipment this month and dredging is scheduled to start on or about October 1, 2017 and take about 4-5 weeks to complete.

“The remaining effort to complete the project consists of hydraulically dredging up to approximately 39,000 cubic yards of sandy material in the Federal channel connecting Vineyard Sound to Menemsha Pond,” said Project Manager Craig Martin, of the Corps’ New England District, Programs/Project Management Division in Concord, Mass.

The sandy dredge material will be pumped via pipeline about 1.5 miles west along Lobsterville Beach to the placement site near an area of erosion adjacent to State Road in Aquinnah.
