FIELDS LANDING- The Humboldt Bay Harbor District is a step closer to beginning their dredging project in King Salmon.

Maintenance crews completed the assembly of the harbor and had to be assembled piece by piece upon arrival. Now that the dredge has been fully constructed, crews will begin the process of repair, repainting and re-powering the machine before it can be used.

The dredge and maintenance is funded through a $2 million PG&E grant. The vessel’s first project will be to dredge the Fisherman’s Channel in King Salmon. The project is currently in the permitting process while crews complete work on the dredge. The harbor district hopes to begin dredging by next year.
