PenBayPilot: Prock Marine is scheduled to begin removing approximately 2,000 cubic yards of gravel, silt and rocks from 3 spots in Camden’s inner harbor, fill that will be loaded into dump trucks and transported to Oak Hill Cemetery on Hosmer Pond Road and used to level the town’s burial ground.

The bulk of the dredging will take place at the head of the harbor where the Megunticook River empties into Camden Harbor. That area is above the town landing, near the the waterfall, and below the Montgomery Dam. The two additional areas include near the town’s Bay View Street stormwater outlet pipe and at the Camden Yacht Club. The total coastal wetlands area affected will be 21,600 square feet (12,000 at the harbor head, 1,600 at the stormwater outlet, and 8,000 feet at the yacht club).
