Saco River Dredging Project About to Begin

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England announced today that the next phase of Saco River dredging project is set to begin in mid-December.

The Saco River dredging contract was awarded to H&L Contracting, Inc. LLC, of Bayshore, New York.

According to the Corps, this work that will clear the lower portion of the channel will last approximately three months.

The $3.93 million worth scheme to dredge the lower Saco River is the second phase of the federal navigation project authorized by Congress to clear out the channel from downtown Saco to the river mouth.

Last year, the Army Corps dredged upper section the channel with the price tag of just over $4 million.

USACE estimates that this year, the contractor will remove around 80,000 cubic yards of dredged material from the lower portion of the channel.
