City of Oconto to Dredge in 2013

In order to keep the Oconto River and Harbor open to commercial fishermen and recreational boaters this summer, the City will be dredging starting on or around June 15, 2013.  Specifications for this project will be released next week.  The project is scheduled for two phases.  Phase 1 will return the river from the mouth to Hi Seas Marina to 6.5 feet deep.  Phase 2 is contingent upon receiving grant money and will extend the area of the dredge to the Oconto Yacht Club and the depth to 8.5 feet.  If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at (920)834-7711.
