Town of Essex Dredge Project Meeting Update 7.8.24

Today we convened at Essex Town Hall for another productive meeting about the pending project to dredge the Essex River.

Here are some updates:
▶️ The US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) component of the project is currently scheduled to begin on October 1, 2024.

▶️ The Corps will be issuing a bid solicitation soon for the project.

▶️ State, Federal, and Town of Essex – Government officials are working with the Corps to coordinate a companion project with local marina owners to take advantage of the federal project with a companion project to ensure their continued access to sustainable water depths adjacent to their properties.
▶️ That project will need to follow closely on the completion of the Corps federal project to accomodate the regulatory window for completion of dredge work in the late winter / early spring.

Thanks to everyone who is working together to capitalize on this rare opportunity to improve our waterways and support the local economy.
