Poplar River Harbour Manitoba - Routine Maintenance Dredging of the Poplar River at Lake Winnipeg - Winter 2019

Poplar River Harbour is located at the East end of Lake Winnipeg at the mouth of the Poplar River, approximately 135 km North of Bloodvien, Manitoba. The harbour is an active commercial fishing facility under the administration of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Small Craft Harbours Branch (SCH).

Small Craft Harbours is proposing to undertake routine maintenance dredging at Poplar River Harbour.  The scope of this project includes routine maintenance dredging of the West side of the harbour between the breakwater and float wharves. The proposed dredging will be done from the ice by land based equipment and a silt curtain will be used to isolate the area.  All dredged material will be disposed of on land above the high water mark. The approximate area to be dredged is 323 square meters, and the approximate total volume of material is 312 cubic meters
