Dredges At Rest, Falmouth Harbor – Slideshow

Dredge at rest, Falmouth Harbor
Written by Brian Tarcy

FALMOUTH – It has taken several years but we have finally gotten photos of the missing piece of our rather informal visual study of dredging projects on Cape Cod. We found two barges at rest in Falmouth Harbor, with their often unseen drill bits, known as cutterheads, exposed.

Back in April, at the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, we found the end of the outfall pipe as it was renourishing a beach.

And in June 2017, we found the County Dredge team in Harwich installing a dredge pipe.

In February 2020, we found the final part of a beach nourishment project as dredged sand was being spread on Surf Drive Beach.

Those are all the old stories we could dredge up.
