Hudson River Dredging Project Commenses

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

The second phase of the Hudson River Dredging Project officially began this morning. River flows having receded, two dredges began operations in the Upper Hudson south of Rogers Island in Fort Edward. One dredge is removing sediment, the other debris. 

 
Dredging will take place on a limited basis at first and gradually increase to full operation over the next few weeks. Dredging will take place 24 hours a day, six days a week through October, river flows and weather conditions permitting. As many as four dredges and four backfill platforms, 17 tugboats and more than 25 barges will be operating in the Upper Hudson during dredging and related operations.
 
The Upper Hudson and Champlain Canal remain open for recreational and commercial use during dredging.
