Dredging of sections of the Housatonic River began as Hurricane Sandy subsided. This will be the first time the river has seen significant dredging since 1976.

It will take about a month to move 50,000 cubic yards of silt and deepen the channel in the Housatonic River.

It took more than a decade to dredge through the process of making it happen.

“For 13 years we’ve been working on this,” Bill Rock, chairman of the Stratford Waterfront and Harbor Management Commission, said.
