Dredging Today: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, is proposing maintenance dredging of the Mystic River Federal Navigation Project (FNP) in Groton and Stonington, Connecticut. The state of Connecticut is the local sponsor for this proposed work and the state is funding this dredging project.

The authorized Federal navigation project consists of a 15’ channel, 125’ from the Sound up to the railroad bridge, then 100’ wide up to the highway bridge (U.S. Route 1); a 12’ channel above the highway bridge to the upper wharves at the Seaport Museum; a 9’ by 8.5-acre anchorage in the harbor north of Mason Island; and a 9’ turning basin above the railroad bridge.
