SH dredging

SH dredging

Dredging of the Black River channel in South Haven began in earnest this past week by King Co. of Holland. About 18,000 cubic yards of material from the federal navigation channel will be placed south of the South Pier and the city’s water filtration plant that is near the pier. The project is being overseen by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The public should remain clear of dredging and placement areas. Fencing and signs will be posted at the nearshore placement area for the project, which is expected to last approximately two weeks.
