Resources & Project Updates
In December 2016, Stantec produced a scoring matrix based on stakeholder feedback, technical and environmental testing. The top scoring site is located near the Coast Guard Station, outside the federal channel between South Port Marine and the Coast Guard Station, just southeast of the Casco Bay Bridge.
This site will undergo further study and testing before a final recomendation is made for permitting.
In a collaborative effort to advance the pier dredging initiative, the cities of Portland and South Portland formed a Non-Federal Dredge (NFD) work group in early 2014. Part of the group's work was to assess and recommend options for the disposal of unacceptably contaminated sediments (UCS's.) In December 2014, the group recommended the city move forward with an RFP for the design and permitting of a CAD cell in Portland Harbor.
