Dredging Trial to Begin in Falmouth

A dredging trial is set to begin in Falmouth Harbour within days.
The work will see a small-scale trial held in 6 selected areas to study the potential environmental impact of a wider dredging of the area.

The work, commissioned by the Falmouth Harbour Commissioners, will be undertaken by specialist dredging contractors, GPS Marine.
The deep water channel proposals by the Port of Falmouth Development Initiative (PFDI) are aimed at safeguarding Falmouth’s future as a working port and opening up new business opportunities.  The PFDI projects it will lead to the creation of hundreds of jobs and drive major growth in the Cornish economy.

James Cross, Chief Executive of the Maritime Management Organisation (MMO) said “We have agreed to the trial as it will provide information on the extent to which maerl and its associated communities survive and recover from translocation”.
