The scope of this project includes routine maintenance dredging of the harbor entrance channel.

Under the official plan, the proposed dredging will be done from the ice by land based equipment and a silt curtain will be used to isolate the area.

All dredged material will be disposed of on land above the high water mark.

The approximate area to be dredged is 844 square meters, and the approximate total volume of material is 823 cubic meters of material.

Dauphin River Harbor is located at the West end of Lake Winnipeg at the mouth of the Dauphin River, approximately 330 km north of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The harbor is an active commercial fishing facility under the administration of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Small Craft Harbors Branch (SCH).
