Recommended Posts

The Lake Ontario counties of Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, Wayne, Cayuga and Oswego, the town of Greece and the city of Oswego are jointly undertaking an update and expansion of the Regional Harbor Dredging Management Plan completed in 2000. Two public meetings will be held to review preliminary findings and receive public feedback.

Members of the Project Advisory Committee and its consultant will present economic impacts of business activity generated at 20 federal and non-federal harbors, review their existing conditions and need for dredging, and outline future steps and tasks for project completion in 2013. A Question & Answer Session will follow.

Safe navigation through the recreational harbor channels provides access to public property, fishing resources and many other water dependent recreational opportunities. These channels also provide safe harbors for regional and international tourists. Unfortunately, federal funding for maintenance dredging of shallow draft recreational channels has been severely limited through 2013, leaving some channels with restricted access. This Regional Plan will serve as a blueprint for efficient and sustainable maintenance of the harbors that are the lifeblood of our coastal communities and businesses.

This project is funded in part by an Environmental Protection Fund grant from the New York State Department of State
