Blue Hill Harbor Navigation Improvement Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), in partnership with the Town of Blue Hill, Maine initiated this feasibility study of establishing a Federal Navigation Project (FNP) in Blue Hill Harbor, Blue Hill, Maine. The study was conducted to determine if Federal participation in channel and related navigation improvements is warranted.

The proposed channel improvements would increase the harbor’s ability to accommodate safe and efficient commercial fishing vessel operations from the Town Landing. Establishing a FNP would also eliminate groundings of fishing boats transiting to and from the landing at lower tides. 

This study developed and analyzed various alternatives for navigation channel improvements and the benefits that each alternative provides.
