HME Construction Wins Port of Kalama Dredging Contract

The Port of Kalama said in their latest release that a maintenance dredging program at the Temco LLC berth, aimed to ensure the draft necessary for cargo ships at the terminal, is set to begin next week. 

The port commission voted to award the $814,212 dredging contract to HME Construction. The routine maintenance project will start on Tuesday, September 4th, and is expected to last three weeks.

The dredging project will remove sand in front of the Temco terminal and then use the material to continue beach nourishment on the Port of Kalama riverfront at Louis Rasmussen Park.

The beach nourishment process, which is a continuation of the project started last fall, will temporarily impact some beaches at the park starting Tuesday, September 4th.

The last complete beach nourishment project took place in the 1980s.

According to the release, the port is rebuilding the beach so it can continue to be used for recreation.
