The Connecticut Port Authority said in their latest announcement that the North Cove Dredge Project, located near the mouth of the Connecticut River, officially started earlier this week.

The project is set to remove 290,000 cubic yards of sediment, in order to restore the Cove and its entrance channel to their federally authorized width and depth, the authority stated.

This $4.3 million work will be accomplished by Donjon Marine Company, Inc. of Hillside, New Jersey.

“This is an exciting time to invest in Connecticut, and the Port Authority is proud to play our part in supporting our local communities and economic development across the state,” said Scott Bates, the Port Authority’s chairman.

The Connecticut Port Authority is investing in the future of Connecticut’s maritime industry. Projects like this in North Cove really hit home for our waterfront communities.”

Silty shoal material removed from the Cove will be placed in dump scows and hauled approximately 35 miles southwest by water route to the Central Long Island Sound Disposal Site and placed at predesignated coordinates

Representative Devin Carney; Deputy Secretary of State and CPA Chairman, Scott Bates; State Senator Formica; CPA Executive Director, Evan Matthews; and First Selectwoman and CPA Board Member, Bonnie Reemsnyder, Town of Old Lyme attended the Monday’s kick-off ceremony.
