USACE hosts Conneaut Creek Dredge Facility Groundbreaking

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District Deputy District Commander, Maj. Lyle Milliman and Deputy District Engineer, Dave Romano, attended a ceremony celebrating the Conneaut Creek Dredge Facility Groundbreaking in Conneaut, Ohio, earlier this week.

Conneaut Harbor handles commodities that support $6.2 billion in business revenue, 32,621 direct, indirect, and induced jobs, and $1.7 billion in labor income.

The new facility will work in conjunction with the success of the harbor as it will separate material dredged out of the harbor into its component parts which can then be sold, further supporting the work and business generated through Conneaut Harbor and the Great Lakes.
