Fairport Harbor dredging program moves ahead

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, is working on the Grand River in Fairport Harbor, Ohio.


Together with its contractor Ryba Marine Construction Company, they are dredging the harbor to provide ease of navigation and safe passage for large vessels carrying products vital to the economy.

The dredged material will be placed in the new sediment recycling facility in the city of Fairport Harbor, Ohio.

Different buckets are utilized depending on the material being dredged.

The bucket in these photos holds at least 16 yards worth of material per bucket and is used due to the dredged material being of a softer nature.
