The city has applied to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to conduct maintenance dredging at Hammond Marina.

The dredging would allow better boat access to the marina and moorage slips.

About 72,500 cubic yards of accumulated sediment would be moved from a 10 ½-acre section to a disposal location adjacent to the marina.

The proposed dredging of the basin would be to a depth of 8 feet mean lower low water and a portion of the entrance channel to the depth of 10 feet. Dredging would be accomplished by a hydraulic dredge and pipeline.

The Corps seeks public comment on the proposal. More information is available by going to the Portland division’s website, nwp.usace.army.mil and then selecting “Missions” at the top of the page and “Regulatory” and “Notices.” Comments are due by March 31.

Dredging would take place Nov. 1 through Feb. 28.
