The project was initiated by the Government of Canada as part of a national commitment to clean up federal harbours. FRPD partnered with Tervita Corporation to provide marine services including dredging, structure demolition and reconstruction, slope protection and sand cover placement. FRPD supported local first nation s bands by utilizing an existing barge ramp to offload approximately 150,000 cubic meters of dredged material.
The project incorporated conventional type equipment outfitted with the latest dredging technology instrumentation and software to assist with location and grade control. In addition FRPD utilized two new 8 cubic meter level-cut environmental clamshell buckets.
