The $21 million contract includes annual maintenance dredging of the Oakland Inner and Outer harbor channel to -50-f t (MLLW) plus 1-ft of paid over-depth.

The work also calls for the transportation and disposal of the dredged material, partly in the Bay and partly at a contractor-furnished upland beneficial reuse site.

Dredging is to be performed either by a clamshell or hydraulic dredge with an estimated completion date of Dec. 30, 2023.

The Port of Oakland is the major container facility in San Francisco Bay area and is a National Strategic Port. The project was recently deepened to -50-feet MLLW from -42-feet MLLW.
