Centerport Harbor Dredging to Begin

Councilwoman Susan Berland meets with representatives from the Suffolk County Department of Public Works, the Huntington Beach Community Association, the Town’s Department of Maritime Services and Centerport Boat Works to discuss details of dredging project.

The Town of Huntington wants to alert boaters that Suffolk County is about to begin the first dredging of the Centerport Harbor Navigation Channel in 14 years, a six-week project aimed at facilitating recreational boating in the harbor.

The County-funded project, which is to start Oct. 1, will include dredging the channel to 12 feet below mean water and replenishing the Town’s Centerport Beach and the Huntington Beach Community Association beach with a total of 30,000 cubic yards of sand. Following the dredging, the Town will reseed the shellfish stock (the northern portion of the channel area is seasonally certified for shellfishing) through its shellfish hatchery program.

Due to the complexity of the dredging operation some boaters will be asked to remove their boats or moorings while the project is on going.  The Town Harbormaster’s Office will do its best to accommodate anyone affected.  Affected boaters can move their boats to Coneys’ mooring field and purchase launch service from the Town for the remainder of the season (Oct 1 to Nov 6th) at a cost of $115 for residents and $135 for non-residents. If slips are available, winter wet storage can be purchased at the standard monthly rate.

Residents should also be aware that for the first half of the project, dredging will be conducted 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with associated noise.

Persons with questions and concerns can call the Town Harbormaster Office at 351-3255.

    Berland is a photo op queen. Then she has the marginalized people like Dork do more dicey work. We all know the game of the Democratic operatives at this point. WE also know how it is screwing our town.

  • RIDDLA

    ANON ,PLEASE BE NICE

  • DREDGE AWAY!!!

    the best clean up we can do is dredge Susie B out of office in a little over a month. Yes this needs to be done, but so does she.

    Queen of photo ops, doesn’t even care about the water being clean or helping Centerport, just waits for the flash and runs in!

  • photo Op Queen

    Funny, how this dredging is 100% funded by Suffolk County DPW due to the hard work of County Legis John Cooper, and yet Berland organizes a photo op to “Let residents know.” Is that the real reason for the pic and news release…. to let us know that SOMEONE ELSE was able to work hard and get this done? Or is the pic and news release to try and give readers the illusion that she had something to do with it so she gets a few more votes from the boating community. Pols like Berland need to go.

  • @photo op queen

    no surprise, the town board and even took credit years ago for the new East Nortport public library and the (United States Postal Service)East Northport post office. Thats how far back this goes.Their whole careers are spent fighting over who gets the photo op and who can take credit.Most of the time they have nothing to do with the event/grand openning etc.

  • Special Olympics

    They did the same thing with the Special Olympics this year over at Huntington High School and had NO involvement what so ever in organizing the event. They caught wind of it when the permits were filed. Funny how they only sent the 2 that are up for re-election for that.

    Also the Children’s Garden on New York Avenue? Glenda Jacksons picture was circulated all over with her wearing pearls and holding a paint brush like she somehow had anything to do with the actual painting or growing of that garden.

    Pathetic! If they spent as much time working as they do fighting for credit for other peoples hard work maybe the community wouldn’t be falling apart the way it is.
