Disposal of dredge material is set to take place at an approved site south west of Hook Head.

The campaign is expected to last about 20 days and will include dredging work undertaken by the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Shoalway, followed by bed levelling.

The bed-levelling operations will be completed by the vessel Fastnet Sound. 

The dredging is carried out to ensure the waterway remains navigable for the larger vessels using Waterford Port.
