MA Bill Would Facilitate Essex River Dredging

Seth_MoultonGloucester Times: The Essex River shone in the cold sun Thursday for the announcement that Congressman Seth Moulton, who represents the 6th District — which includes Cape Ann — is sponsoring a bill that would clear the way for the town to clean up the Essex River channel.

The congressional bill, the Essex River Jobs and Recreation Act, would re-designate the boundaries of the federal channel so there would be no encroachment issues from piers and docks, freeing the town to dredge the upper part of the river as it approaches the downtown Causeway to allow better passage of watercraft.
