Searsport Harbor Dredging Update

October 4, 2013 IIT IIT News Update

The US Army Corps of Engineers and the Maine Department of Transportation (MDOT) propose to dredge nearly one million cubic yards from in and approaching Searsport Harbor. IIT’s concerns are many and we have engaged with the Corps and others, hoping that the proposal will be limited to maintenance-dredging only, and that any such maintenance-dredging is conducted in the safest manner possible.

For more information about this matter, you may read: the most recent letter from IIT to the Corps, a three page fact sheet, a letter from the Islesboro Board of Selectmen to the Corps, or an essay that appeared in the Working Waterfront.
