Maine’s Scarborough River Dredging Begins


Portland Press Herald: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin dredging [Maine’s] Scarborough River this week, a $1.7 million project that will create new habitat for the threatened piping plover and make the river channel between the Pine Point and Prouts Neck neighborhoods safer for navigation.

Scarborough Town Manager Tom Hall said the Army Corps of Engineers plans to remove about 114,000 cubic yards of soil from the river’s bottom and move the material to Western Beach.
