Re: Green Harbor Dredging & Shoaling conditions

 

  

     Mariners are advised to use caution while transiting the Green Harbor entrance channel, especially during periods of low tide. The entrance channel has sustained substantial shoaling of approximately 10,000 cubic yards of sand due to the relentless Nor’ Easters this past winter. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will be conducting maintenance dredging of the narrows during the period 30 April thru 7 May 2010 with the hydraulic dredging vessel “Currituck”. We are optimistic that the channel will not be impeded during this short project. The Currituck will be working on a 24 hour schedule (weather permitting).  All mariners are advised to use caution while transiting the Harbor and entrance channel. Please show courtesy to the working crews as they continue to enhance our Harbor. The Currituck crew will be monitoring channels VHF 16 & 13.

 

 

Sincerely,

****************************************************************************
Green Harbor dredging project to commence on 09 November 2009
 
The Federal portion of this project will consist of the removal of approx. 60,000 cubic yards of sediment from both the Outer & Inner Harbor.
The Town of Marshfield will also be conducting maintenance dredging along the North & South Commercial piers. In addition, to the dredging project there will be a marine contractor
on site re-bracing the Commercial fish piers. This work is expected to start on or about 2 November 2009. The mooring removal contractor is presently on site in Green Harbor, the contractor
will start to remove the current moorings to allow the ease of the dredging projects. The Harbor area will be extremely busy over the next couple of months; there will be some inconveniences as with any project.  All dredging concerns should be directed to the Harbormasters office.
 
 
There will be a public meeting with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USCAE) and the awarded dredging contractor (J. Cashman co.). The USACE and dredging contractor will discuss the project details and answer questions regarding the dredging. This meeting will take place on Wednesday 04 November 2009 at 10:30am at the Marshfield Town Hall 870 Moraine Street. Hearing room# 2 and 3
