CLE’s has expertise in surveys, resource area delineations, mooring fields and dredging
CLE worked with the Town of Marion to develop a detailed existing conditions plan for Sippican Harbor. This plan included DGPS locations of all existing moorings, floating docks, navigation and anchorage markers, eel grass delineations and bathymetry of the harbor areas. CLE then met with the Town and developed a proposed mooring reorganization plan to maximize the number of moorings in the harbor and improve access. As part of the planning process, CLE worked with the harbormaster to evaluate different mooring systems and their suitability for Sippican Harbor.
The existing conditions plan has proved to be a valuable tool for planning purposes in the harbor as well as mooring management. CLE has also performed follow up hydrographic surveys of channel areas to monitor shoaling rates and develop long term dredging plans. CLE’s expertise in surveys, resource area delineations, mooring fields and dredging is routinely called upon by the Town of Marion.
