Dryad Point Lightstation - Log Boom Replacement

DFO and CCG are proposing to replace two breakwater log booms at Dryad Point Lightstation. The lightstation is located at the northwest entrance to Seaforth Channel, the site is situated at the water's edge. The existing two log boom system protects the lightstation dock from the waves of passing vessels. The site is along a common ferry route and does see a lot of boat traffic. The log booms have reached the end of their life, and one of them has come loose from its position and is now floating below the surface of the water which presents a danger to approaching vessels that cannot see the log. The proposed project will replace the log booms and will include the following steps:

  • Replacement of log booms (roughly 800mm diameter, 18m long)
  • Mobilization of all necessary materials, equipment, and labour to Dryad Lightstation
  • Removal of existing breakwater logs
  • Installation of new breakwater logs and bobber logs
  • Installation of necessary hardware for logs / holding them in place (chains, bolts, washers, nuts, steel pipes, etc.)
  • Demobilization and safe disposal off-site of existing log booms

No pile driving, dredging or infilling will be required for this proposed project.
