Ocean Reef Boat Harbor Dredging Begins

Maintenance dredging began at Ocean Reef Boat Harbor this week, helping to restore safe navigational access for recreational boat users, reports the Department of Transport.

According to DoT General Manager of Coastal Infrastructure, Donna West, the dredging will take place over the next two months.

The $300,000 project will involve approximately 6,000 cubic meters of sediments being removed from the entrance channel, near-shore areas and around the boat ramps, improving access to the harbor,” said Ms West.

Skippers operating in the area and people accessing the beach need to be aware of the special safety arrangements implemented for the dredging and onshore works.”

Works will be undertaken using a cutter suction dredge, which hydraulically pumps sand to the disposal site area located north-east of the boat harbor and to the inner harbor’s beach.

Ms West added that testing has confirmed that dredge material can be safely deposited on the beach.
