The area of work in this phase of the dredge is from the American Yacht Club to the Harbor House. The dredged silt will be dumped in deep water in Connecticut. The City is requesting users of the boat basin and channel observe added caution and patience while navigating the area.

The dredging of the boat basin is a separate process and will take place in the Fall of 2023.
