Quincy Bay Restoration Advances Toward Start
Quincy Bay Area Restoration and Enhancement Association officials report receiving three levels of approval in the review process for proposed projects. The project fact sheet now goes to the Army Corps of Engineers for review. A variety of alternatives are under study including dredging of parts of Quincy Bay and construction of a rock dike/weir structure at the small boat access channel to reduce sediment transport. The project is on federal land and within Quincy Bay Area Restoration and Enhancement limits. Total costs are expected to be 15 to 25 million dollars between now and 2025. The proposed project is in full accordance with the Water Resources Development Act of 1986.
