The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, has scheduled the dredging of Milford Pond in Milford, Massachusetts. Work will begin in August 2014 and will extend over a 1-year period. The estimated construction cost is between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000.
The proposed project involves the dredging of approximately 250,000 cubic yards (CY) of material from approximately 17 acres of Milford Pond in order to restore open water habitat suitable for resident fish species and water birds. Milford Pond is a 120-acre fresh-water shallow impoundment on the headwaters of the Charles River. Access to the pond is by a paved road and constructed concrete boat ramp.
