Preparations Underway for Axmouth Harbor Dredging Work

Axmouth Harbor will shortly be relieved of quantities of naturally accumulated silt during a three phase program of dredging work, which will be undertaken over the coming months by the Axe Yacht Club in conjunction with the Axe Harbor Management Company.

The silt will be removed from the harbor and deposited within reception trenches that have already been dug on the adjacent beach to the West of the Yacht Club.

Without the dredging work, the harbor would silt up and return to its former state of mud flats, which would be a sad loss of an important local amenity that benefits not just Seaton, but also the wider East Devon area, the East Devon District Council said in their release.

“There will be breaks in dredging activity over the Christmas holidays and during the February half term break. The disposal area will move gradually westwards as works progress before the project is finally completed in March 2018,” said the council.

The council is actively working with the harbor management company, Axe Yacht Club and various licensing bodies to look at alternative ways of disposing silt from the harbor as part of the Seaton Beach Management Plan. This could include disposal of the silt offshore or onto lower areas of the beach to allow it to be washed away more freely.
