CT Dredging Bill Poised for Senate Approval
May 10, 2012
TheDay.com: Local marina owners could get hefty discounts off the cost of a future dredging project under a bill that is poised to pass the Connecticut state Senate.
The legislation authorizes state grants to help marinas afford sediment, dredging and disposal projects. The grants, to be distributed from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection‘s Long Island Sound Cleanup account, would cover at least 40 percent of a project’s expense. The average project is about $272,000.
