San Juan Harbor Dredging Wrapped Up

Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting has just released a video of the San Juan Harbor dredging project, completed this past summer, one month ahead of schedule.

The Quincy based dredging company was contracted to conduct maintenance dredging as follows:

  • from Anchorage Area E to a required depth of 36 feet;
  • Army Terminal Turning Basin to a required depth of 40 feet; Army Terminal Channel to a required depth of 40 feet;
  • Cruise Ship Basin West to a required depth of 36 feet;
  • San Antonio Channel to a required depth of 35 feet (with 2 feet of allowable overdepth throughout);
  • with disposal of all dredged material in the Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site ~2.2 nautical miles northwest of the harbor.

San Juan Harbor is located on the north coast of Puerto Rico. It is the island’s principal port, handling over 75 percent of the Commonwealth’s non-petroleum waterborne commerce and is the only harbor on the north coast affording protection in all types of weather.

The port is composed of a total of sixteen piers, of which eight are used for passenger ships and eight for cargo ships.
