Maintenance Dredging - L'Anse-à-Brillant Fishing Harbour

The Small Craft Harbours Branch of Fisheries and Oceans Canada proposes to undertake maintenance dredging at L'Anse-à-Brillant fishing harbour, located in Gaspésie, in the Québec province.  

The maintenance dredging aims to provide safe and accessible facilities for local fishermen. The scope of this project includes maintenance dredging of the channel and the basin. The maximum volume of dredged material is about 4000m3.  The proposed dredging will be carried out by means of a barge with opening bottom, a hydraulic shovel or a crane equipped with a half shell bucket. Dredged sediments will be submerged at sea in an authorized disposal site (ABR-1).
