Housatonic River Dredging Program Wrapped Up

Maintenance dredging of the lower portion of the Housatonic River Federal Navigation Channel in Stratford and Milford, Connecticut, is now completed, The Connecticut Post (ctpost.com) reports.

The $9.3 million contract was undertaken by Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Company, LLC of Quincy, Mass.

During the last couple of months, the contractor removed over 270,000 cubic yards of clean fine-grain sand from the channel, placing it directly onto the Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.

“We hope to maintain steady progress with similar projects going forward,” said Scott Bates, chairman of the Connecticut Port Authority. “The Connecticut Port Authority, in its first year of operation, has established a thoughtful system to identify and complete dredging and maintenance projects that enhance navigation and improve the use of Connecticut’s shoreline and inland waterways.”

The dredging window in these areas, due to environmental constraints, is October 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018, although the lowest portion may be dredged until February 28, 2018 and the beach may be graded into March 2018.
