The dredging of the channel into the City Yacht Basin is under way.
A dredging boat was spotted in the channel late last week.
Larry Parks, director of public works for Havre de Grace, told Patch Tuesday afternoon that the dredging of the channel into the marina should be done by the middle of next week.
Parks said Ray Nornes, Inc. of Berlin, MD—the company contracted to do the dredging—will clear out the area around Hutchins Park next. The same company dredged the City Yacht Basin last winter.
A request for bid was put out in November after an extremely high amount of silt settled into the channel following flooding in September.
Some residents complained to City Council about the inability to access the Susquehanna River and northern Chesapeake Bay area following the flooding.
The depth of the water reached a maximum of four feet in some areas during high tide, according to city officials and boaters.
The season for dredging ends Feb. 15, but Parks said extensions are sometimes provided. The project in Havre de Grace, he said, is unlikely to come close to the deadline.
