Maintenance Dredging at the Jurien Bay Harbour
The Department of Transport (DoT) is undertaking maintenance dredging at Jurien Bay Boat Harbour, to maintain a navigable channel and ensure safe access to the facility. It is expected that the dredging will remove significant amounts of seagrass wrack and sand from the harbour seabed to deliver an improved harbour environment.
The maintenance dredging is scheduled to be carried out from December 2014 until March 2015. If you have any queries relating to the dredging works please contact the dredging project manager on 6163 4926 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, if you have queries relating to the larger improvement program at the harbour DoT can be contacted on JurienBoatHarbour.email@example.com
