Government of New Brunswick


The dredging of inner harbors and open water channels along New Brunswick coastlines are often required to ensure the safety of watercraft navigation. The Department's main concerns with the disposal of dredging material on land are siltation of aquatic habitat and salt contamination of fresh water resources by marine dredging material.
