To date, the majority of the dredging project has been completed. The containment berm construction was substantially completed in November 2018 (with minor touch ups from time to time). Dredging of the navigational channel and turning basin was substantially complete in March 2019 after having placed the dredged material behind the containment berm.
A detailed bathymetric survey was conducted in April 2019 to determine residual scope (high points) within the channel, turning basin and berth face. With the fisheries window re-opening in mid-August, PCT will be recommencing its work to address the high points identified in the April survey. The work will be focused at the PCT berth face and the navigational channel with a few points to be addressed within the turning basin. Dredging activities are expected to be completed by the end of September.
Equipment being used to complete the work will consist of a barge mounted derrick and scows. Work is currently planned to be completed within normal work hours between 7am and 8pm Monday to Saturday.
