Bill has already posted about the Notice to Mariners here and the EDP article here which starts tomorrow.

Could I put in a plea for anyone who is in a position to do so, to let me know what impact this has on the abilitty to use a quant through Yarmouth at slack water. I will check it out myself as soon as I get the chance, but that won't be until the end of June at the earliest, and I would like to keep my web pageup to date.

In recent years quanting hasn't been a problem, but I remeber back in the 60's and 70's the river was generally too deep. If the same is true after the dredging, I'll amend the web page.

hi,
i understand this is not dredging in the traditional way, but water jetting, they're hoping doing it when the tide is going out it will take the silt/mud away with it.
got to say i'm not holding me breath on the success of this................

Hi All
This is a way of Dredging,that works elsewhere,
and the Company who does it is very respected,Dutch of course,who know more about this sort of thing,
The idea is brill, suck up the sludge suspend it in the water and let the tide take it out.
Wish we had thought of it first.

And with a sand bar under the haven bridge no risk of being swept out to sea Evil Grin   I wonder how many lost mud weights they will uncover I can just see forum members cruising backward and forwards with their sea magnets out. Wink

I did suggest in another place that before and after Google Earth photos might be interesting.
