Dredging works commenced at Port MacDonnell
Wednesday, 30 March 2022
Dredging works have now commenced at Port MacDonnell to improve safety and access to the harbor, boat ramp and mooring ground.
The project will remove a significant accumulation of sandy materials at the harbor entrance and mooring grounds as well as a build-up of seaweed inside the (harbor) channel, improving safety and access to the harbour, boat ramp and mooring ground for all boat users.
Works will be undertaken 24-hours a day, seven days-a-week, to ensure the project is completed as quickly as possible. Noise levels will be reduced between 10pm and 7am to limit any impact on nearby residents.
Works will cease if dolphins or seals are observed within five metres of any dredging.
The harbor entrance will be accessible to boat operators during the works, however the ramp will be limited to one lane until late April. Boats using the boat haven entrance should use caution and follow the 4-knot speed limit.
Works are expected to be completed by late July 2022, weather permitting.
Organic materials dredged from the channel will be screened, drained and transported to the adjacent western beach. Sand dredged from the harbor entrance will be deposited for replenishment of sandy beaches located east of the harbor.
Thank you for your patience while these important works are undertaken.
