DNREC: Assawoman Dredging Kicks Off

DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation has announced that dredging work on a lagoon adjacent to the Assawoman Canal in Delaware Seashore State Park is set to begin this week. 

Preparation operations for the dredging project took place at the site off Town Road near Route 26 in Ocean View, DE.

According to DNREC, these activities included tree removal along the perimeter of the lagoon.

The project will enable launch access to the canal for canoes and kayaks.

During the construction period, which is expected to last until late spring, the Town Road parking lot and trailhead will be temporarily closed on some construction days. The main portion of the Assawoman Canal Trail will remain open to walkers and cyclists, said DNRC.
