Image source: Dredging Solutions

The MidCoast Council (NSW) has commenced works on a long awaited Harrington Back Channel Dredging project.

The work will be undertaken by Dredging Solutions Pty Ltd of Castle Hill, Australia.

Dredging works are anticipated to take 10 weeks and will be completed in time for the busy Christmas period.

According to the Council, the project will involve the dredging of up to 15,000 cubic meters of marine sediments from the identified shallow areas of the back channel, ultimately resulting in a safer navigation for boat users.

Boat users are advised to be aware of changed conditions in the area during the works period, including underwater, anchored pipelines and limited thoroughfare in the channel. A second closure of the boat ramp will be required at the end of the dredging.

Funding for the project is being sourced from a NSW Government “Rescuing Our Waterways” grant and Council’s environmental rate.
