The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, will host a public meeting to gather and consider public comments on the annual maintenance dredging project for Dillingham small boat harbor.

The event will be held on Monday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m. at the City Hall Council Chambers, 141 Main Street, Dillingham, Alaska 99576.

USACE representatives will be available to answer questions and receive public comments following a brief presentation about the project.

The Dillingham Small Boat Harbor is dredged annually due to heavy silting in the basin and the upper entrance channel and would become unusable to the commercial fishing fleet within 1 to 2 years without dredging.

According to the Corps, the official dredging window is from May through October, but the traditional dredging window is from May 1 to June 30 to mitigate conflict with the fishing fleet.

USACE expects the work to be performed by a hydraulic cutterhead and pipeline suction dredge that pumps the sediment and water through a portable, 12-inch pipeline to a disposal site.
