WERU Special Program on the Searsport Harbor Dredge and Dump Proposal, Mon. Aug. 25 at 10AM
The US Army Corps of Engineers and Maine DOT are proposing a dredging project in Searsport Harbor that would result in nearly a million cubic yards of materials being dumped in Penobscot Bay near Islesboro. Supporters say that an expanded shipping channel would improve commerce in the port, but opponents say the economic and environmental risks far outweigh any potential benefits. WERU News & Public Affairs Manager Amy Browne invites you to join us for a WERU special call in show, Monday morning August 25th at 10 AM for a discussion of this controversial project. We'll have guests in the studio who can answer your questions, and as always, you'll have a chance to weigh in with your opinions as well. That's a WERU special call in show on the Searsport harbor dredge and dump proposal, Monday morning at 10, on community radio WERU-FM 89.9 Blue Hill, 99.9 Bangor and streaming online at weru.org.
