Ohio RV park owner wants harbor dredged sooner than later

VERMILION, Ohio — Dredging of the shallow Vermilion Harbor can’t come soon enough, boaters and marina owners told government officials Wednesday, reports the Chronicle-Telegram.

The newspaper quotes Linda Taylor, owner of Riverview RV Park and Marina, who told officials at a meeting attended by about 120 people at the Vermilion Court Complex: “I just want a channel so my boaters know which way to go out to the river.”

Because of federal budget cuts, the harbor, which used to be dredged every two to three years, hasn’t been dredged by the Army Corps of Engineers since 2004, and now an estimated 59,000 cubic yards of sediment needs to be dredged from the harbor, the Chronicle-Telegram reports.
