The dredging of Cohasset Harbor, Massachusetts, is scheduled to begin in October 2014 and finish by the end of January 2015.

The dredging will occur over approximately 11 acres, including the harbor, its entrance channel, the area opposite the sailing club, and the entrance to Bailey Creek. Sand from the operation will be used to replenish Sandy Beach. The dredging will bring the main channel back to a depth of 9’ MLW (currently about 4’).

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking public comment on the proposed dredging until April 4.

Up to $4 million in federal money for the dredging project has been secured as part of a Hurricane Sandy relief bill.
