The New England District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be dredging two small sections of the channel of the Royal River Federal navigation project (FNP) in Yarmouth, Maine. Dredging operations will commence on or about October 26, 2015. The dredged sediments will be placed at the Portland Disposal Site located approximately 15 Nautical Miles from the mouth of the Royal River FNP.
Included with this notice is a map specifying the Haul Route (dated October 3, 2014) to be used by the dredging contractor transiting to and from the dredged material placement site. All fishing gear must be removed from within the specified haul route to avoid damage to or loss of fishing gear due to dredged material disposal operations.
Individuals seeking additional information regarding this project or having inquiries regarding the loss of fishing gear suspected to be the result of dredged material disposal may contact Michael Walsh, the Corps Project Manager, at (978) 318-8586
