Corps begins spring dredging in Cleveland Harbor

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District began spring 2018 dredging in Cleveland Harbor May 2.

As part of the $4.688 million contract awarded September 6, 2017 to Ryba Marine Construction, 200,000 cubic yards of sediment will be dredged, with approximately 90,000 cubic yards being hydraulically placed into confined disposal facilities and approximately 110,000 cubic yards being mechanically placed into a contractor-furnished confined disposal facility.

“We recognize the economic importance of maintaining safe and navigable channels throughout the Great Lakes Navigation System,” said Lt. Col. Adam Czekanski, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District Commander, “and we remain committed to working with stakeholders in Cleveland and across the Great Lakes to develop sustainable solutions for dredged material management.”
