Senator Shaheen’s VIDEO: Highlighting importance of dredging NH waterways

Senator Jeanne Shaheen released a new video recently, highlighting the safety and economic benefits of dredging infrastructure projects for New Hampshire waterways.

For years, Shaheen has led action in the U.S. Senate to secure the authorization and federal funding for dredging projects in New Hampshire, which is the process of removing sediment and debris from bodies of water that builds up over time and impacts freedom of movement.

Without regular or emergency dredging, this can create dangerous conditions for navigation in the harbor, with serious safety concerns and economic implications for industries that rely on access to the ocean.

In her video, Shaheen explains why dredging matters in New Hampshire and the process she went through to secure authorization and funding to complete the projects.
