KeepMeCurrent.com: Concern that an ongoing fight with the federal government regarding the killing of an endangered piping plover might somehow delay a much-needed dredging project on the Scarborough River appears to have gone out to sea following a December 13 press release from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

According to the release, posted to the Corps’ New England District website, a $1.7 million contract to dredge the river was awarded on December 2 [2013] to North American Landscaping and Dredge Co. Inc. of Ellicott City, Maryland. Work is slated to begin on January 6 to dig out an 8’ deep shipping channel at the mouth of the river, between Pine Point and Prouts Neck, as well as a 6’ deep anchorage area around the town pier at Pine Point.
