This dredging program will be underway for two months.

Deganwy is situated on the North Wales coast, at the mouth of the River Conwy where siltation is a major problem.

The marina is inundated every year with 6,000m3 of sediment which raises the bed by up to 30cm.

Deganwy Marina has been granted a licence by Natural Resources Wales to dredge up to 7,000m3 of silt per year.
