Sarnia Harbour set to undergo $2-million dredging project
City officials are gearing up for a $2-million dredging project in an effort to ensure water depths remain adequate for commercial shipping traffic accessing the harbour for berthage, repairs and cargo transfers. Environmental studies have indicated 25,000 cubic feet of silt will need to be dredged, said Peter Hungerford, the city's director of economic development and corporate planning. But relocation plans for the sediment still need to be determined before dredging can began in the harbour this year. The city is also preparing for a $450,000 upgrade to the electrical services located at the west end of Seaway Road.
