Port of Redwood City announces dredging plans

Port of Redwood City announces dredging plans

   The Port of Redwood City on Monday said a plan to dredge its channel to 30 feet will begin in mid-October

   The $1.6 million, 60-day project will dredge the port channel to its federally permitted depth of 30 feet, from its current channel depth of 26.5 feet, said Michael Giari, executive director, in a statement.

   For several years, the port has been hampered by the shallow channel depth, a situation that essentially forces ships to load less than full shipments of cargo to and from the port.

   Port customers import cement from the Far East, gypsum from Mexico, and building materials from Australia and Canada, all used by the construction industry in Northern California. Another Port business, SimsMetal USA, exports scrap metal to the Far East.
