Contract awarded for Canalfront dredging By Henry J. Evans Jr. The City of Lewes has awarded a contract for $45,400 to a Berlin, Md., company to dredge the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal where the Lewes Canalfront Park will be built. The city council awarded the contract to Ray Nornes Inc., at a special meeting Nov. 17. The Nornes bid was the only one re- ceived. Nornes is charging $14 per'cu- bic yard to dredge approximately 1,600 cubic yards of sediment from the canal. The contract calls for dredging slightly more than 17,000 square feet of the canal to a depth of 3 feet below the mean low-water level. Nornes is charging $15,000 for the placement and removal of equipment needed to do the work. Part of the contract includes two surveys, one to be done before dredging, the other after. Nornes will charge $4,000 for each survey but has agreed to use any surveyor the city chooses if someone can do the job for less. Preston Lee, a consulting engi- neer and the project manager for the Canalfront Park, said the sur- veys are used to determine exactly how much silt has been removed. Lee said the 1,600 cub.ic yard fig- ure in the contract is an estimate of the quantity of material to be 'removed. built in phases with completion scheduled for summer 2007. The Department of Natural Re- sources & Environmental Con- trol's Division of Water Resources requires that the dredging be fin- ished by Dec. 31, to minimize any. effect on flounder populations. DNREC requires the silt to be temporarily deposited at a loca- tion designated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the north side of the canal. The City of Lewes will be re- sponsible for removing the silt from that location. Before work begins, Nornes is required to have a state and city business license. The Lewes Canalfront Park will feature public boat slips, wetland areas, fishing and crabbing piers, walkways, landscaped vistas and various other elements. The $4.9 million project will be Cousins Robert Stewart and George Chambers donated money for this project in memory of their grandfather, Lewis A. Clark. 3700 Hwy.
