Update: 2014-15 Concrete Canal Maintenance Dredging
Engineers have estimated that the total cost of the upcoming 2014 - 2015 Concrete Canal Dredging Maintenance project will be approximately $1,898,600. It is estimated that approximately 56,650 cubic yards of material will be removed from these areas and placed in the designated Corps spoil areas. The expected construction period will be November 1, 2014 thru March 30, 2015. A schedule of when the dredge operations will take place in each canal can be found on the Town’s website at www.oibgov.com/concrete-canals.cfm. It is important that property owners take notice of this schedule and assure that all boats or vessels are removed prior to the contractor arriving in your canals. If boats are not removed it could prohibit or stop dredging from occurring within the canal. The Town is requesting that all concrete canal property owners take this time to properly inspect their bulkhead walls and docks for any damages that may need to be addressed. In an effort to assist our property owners, our staff will be performing visual inspections within the next few months and notifying the property owners should they discover any areas in need of repair.
