Georgia Ports Authority puts up $3 million for Brunswick dredging

Special to SEGAZINE

 

The Georgia Ports Authority board, meeting Monday in Brunswick, voted unanimously to allocate up to $3 million to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to restore the Brunswick Harbor to its approved 36-foot depth.

The Corps deepened the harbor to 36 feet in 2007, but since then harbor maintenance has been underfunded, resulting in a depth of approximately 31 feet, according to Jamie McCurry, GPA senior director of administration.

Due to the current federal budget crunch, the Corps has only limited funding for “medium use ports” such as Brunswick, leaving the South Georgia port underfunded by about $3 million annually.
