Contract Dredging Management

Dredging of a Cape Coral Canal

This program is responsible for maintaining over 400 miles of fresh and saltwater canal systems within the City.   Dredging is performed in order to maintain a navigable condition for the safe movement of boats and preserve ecologically sound conditions. 

The dredge operates in the center of the canal and does not come within 20 feet of the seawall.  Presently, the City uses contractors to perform the dredging work as needed. The City is divided into quadrants, and we are currently working with the SE Quadrant.
