The city is seeking proposals for the dredging of the primary channel into the Havre de Grace Yacht Basin.
The main channel into the marina was filled with silt from a series of late summer storms, primarily the flooding from Tropical Storm Lee.
According to the request for proposal from the city, the dredging will involve moving 9,000 cubic yards of sediment from the channel to Swan Harbor Farm. Proposals are due to the city no later than 5 p.m. on Dec. 9 (see attached PDF).
Dredging must be completed by Feb. 14, 2012.
Wahl purchased a boat this year and docked it at the Yacht Basin.
"I can’t get it out to use it. I’m sure if the main channel to Havre de Grace was plugged and the tugs couldn’t get in and out, they’d be out dredging," Wahl said.
"Putting pilings in outside of the season is possible," he said. "I request you look into that to see if there are any emergency actions that can be taken to help the 200-some citizens who have their boats in that marina."
