Greenwich, CT, Harbormaster Proposes Harbor Dredging
July 27, 2012
The Greenwich Time reports on a recent presentation by Greenwich, Connecticut, Harbormaster Ian MacMillan to members of the Greenwich Retired Men’s Association. At the meeting, MacMillan laid out plans to conserve Greenwich’s 7 harbors and coastline.
Among other things, MacMillan proposed a comprehensive plan for dredging Greenwich Cove. MacMillan said dredging would protect against floods, reduce pollution by increasing water flow, improve the health of town beaches and allow emergency responders to access to waterways that are now too shallow to navigate.
Dredging would also reshape the mooring field off the marina at Lucas Point in Old Greenwich, allowing for increased boating traffic.
