Dredging News Online reports that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proposing to perform maintenance dredging of Hyannis Harbor on Cape Cod to alleviate shoaling caused by Hurricane Sandy and other winter storms.
“These shoals are creating hazardous conditions especially for the ferries that are based in the harbor. Maintenance dredging will return these areas to their authorized dimensions,” Project Manager Bill Kavanaugh of the New England District, Programs/Project Management Division, was quoted as saying.
Pending approval, the work would be performed in June-July 2013 or October-January.
