The Coastal Journal: Bath Iron Works has applied for multiple permits to resume dredging operations in the Kennebec River sometime in the next few months.
According to the public notice released by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the permits are asking for permission to complete 3 separate projects. The first, which has been approved, is a plan to dredge 3,500 cubic yards of material from the shoreline for routine maintenance. The material will be trucked to an in-shore location that has been used by BIW in the past.
