Dredging to be Carried On

Dredging to be Carried On.

The dredging for this proposed channel of 250 feet wide, extending from the upper wharf to the West breakwater should, I think, be commenced at once and carried on simultaneously with the construction of the training wall, for the reason that the channel is wanted now, and it is impossible to tell whether the training wall will do the work by scour without the assistance of dredging. The construction of the training wall will take about two years, and it would not do to wait until it is finished to see what effect it will have on the navigable channel.
