Prock Marine to Dredge Bass Harbor
The proposed navigation work involves maintenance dredging of the Bass Harbor Federal Navigation Project and improvement dredging for harbor deepening and anchorage expansion. Work will consist of mechanical dredging approximately 74,000 cubic yards of fine silts and clay with a small sand component, removing about 100 standard tons of boulders, and blasting and removing approximately 1,760 cubic yards of ledge. The project also includes approximately 11,000 cubic yards of maintenance dredging and 63,000 cubic yards of improvement dredging. Open ocean disposal is at Eastern Passage of Blue Hill Bay six miles from the project site.
