Shallow Draft Harbor Workshop

Great Lakes Harbors Being Set Adrift
    

The Great Lakes Small Harbors Coalition is a group representing small harbors from around the Great Lakes where dredging and harbor maintenance issues are of particular concern. Boat groundings, life endangerment, damage to local economies, a massive backlog of projects, and dramatic deterioration of our navigation infrastructure have all resulted from the lack of sufficient funds to support harbor dredging and maintenance.

The coalition will work with federal and Great Lakes entities to effect the changes needed to address the long-term viability and safety of our harbors.
