NORWALK, CONN. -- The work has been completed on the multiphased Norwalk Harbor dredging process.

The combined maintenance dredging project at Norwalk Harbor and New Haven Harbor were done under the terms of an $8.2 million contract awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Company of Quincy, Mass.

The material was disposed of at the Central Long Island Sound Disposal Site, about 35 miles east of Norwalk Harbor.

State Sen. Bob Duff (D-Norwalk and Darien) applauded the project.

“For over 10 years now, the recreational boaters, fishermen and commercial shippers of Norwalk’s maritime community have been calling for improvements to our city’s harbor," he said in a statement. "After a great deal of work, millions in state and federal funding and the movement of hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of sediment, the dredging of Norwalk Harbor is finally complete — and I couldn't be more pleased.

"Our new and improved harbor will now be more productive than ever, and we can expect a big boost to our local economy. The maritime industries have always lain at the core of Norwalk’s identity, and we now have the modern, safe and accessible harbor our city deserves.

"I am very grateful to the members of the Norwalk Harbor Management Commission, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the many federal, state, and local officials who have worked so hard over so many years to see this project through.”
